Tasting notes

Packed full of sweet pear and ripe lime flavours cut by green apple and a peppery finish. Bright, juicy, and ready to drink, it will age forever.

John Szabo, MS. Surprisingly still quite tightly wound on the nose, revealing minimal aromatic development for the time being. But there's nonetheless a fullish and complete range of flavours on the palate waiting to be expressed. It's fairly soft and round, off-dry, more so than the 2017, but beautifully balanced on the palate, with excellent length in the candied lemon-lime spectrum, also lightly honeyed and pine needle-infused. Good length, too. Acids might be a little soft to take this into extra innings, but it's surely delicious from now until the mid term. Tasted October 2020.

Producer Description

Summerhill Pyramid Winery features organic and biodynamic wine grown in the beautiful Okanagan Valley in Kelowna, British Columbia. Organic practices have been an integral part of Summerhill since the Kelowna vineyard was purchased by the Cipes family in 1986. Producing wine organically has a very meaningful benefit to the environment, and some scientists suggest that eating organic foods greatly benefits our health as well. Aside from these benefits, we believe that organic practices allow for the grapes in our vineyards to honestly express their surroundings, providing deep, terroir-driven qualities that are a true articulation of Okanagan terroir.
 

“Be a conduit and allow your vision, your dream to come through – and fortify it every day."
- STEPHEN CIPES, FOUNDER OF SUMMERHILL PYRAMID WINERY

The team at Summerhill Pyramid Winery seeks to share universal truth, love, and gratitude. The following set of seven guiding principles is a statement of our intentions. These seven principles inform the way we make wine, our business practices, and the way we interact with the world. We are all connected and it is our sincerest hope that we can enhance your life through extraordinary organic pyramid cellared wines, organic local cuisine, and by all of our interactions together.
