2012 Organic Meritage
Bold and Elegant
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.
A blend of 56% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot and 3% Malbec.
Notes of blackberry, black cherry, plum, cedar box, vanilla and black pepper.
The conditions in 2012 were perfect for the growth and ripening of Cabernet Franc grapes, which was nature's hint to produce a Meritage blend showcasing this incredible grape.
Each variety was aged in a combination of French and American oak barriques before choice barrels were selected for blending. This was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
