2004 Cipes Traditional Cuvée
Summerhill Pyramid Winery (established 1991) is Canada's largest organic winery, BC's first Demeter biodynamic vineyard, and Canada's foremost producer of sparkling wine. Our winemaking philosophy is that organic and biodynamic provides the royal road to producing exceptionally beautiful, authentic, terroir-based wine that will connect you with the beautiful Okanagan Valley.
87% Chardonnay, 13% Pinot Noir. 100% Organic!
Intense aromas of honeyed yellow apple, caramel, toasted nuts and earthy umami. Incredible depth and feeling in every sip with flavours of marmalade, ginger, and key lime pie. Seashell minerality, ultra-creamy mousse, and mouthwatering acidity refresh the palate.
Estate grown at Summerhill Vineyard in Kelowna, BC. The grapes were picked with a long sur lie bottle aging period envisioned. Situated in the North Okanagan with WNW facing slopes on ancient, limestone-rich lake bottom silt soil, our home vineyard is especially suited to growing grapes for traditional method sparkling wine. This special cuvée is a testament to the outstanding and unique growing conditions of the site.
Made in the traditional method. The bottles aged sur lie for 18 years before disgorgement began in small batches.
Food Pairing Notes
