2015 Estate Grown Riesling Icewine
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.
100% organic & biodynamic Riesling
This elegant wine displays delicate aromas of honeysuckle, candied lime, apricot, lemon custard and lychee. Lively acidity balances the luscious sweetness on the palate, where flavours of honeyed white peach and candied ginger with hints of baking spice and white pepper dance. The finish is silky and long.
On November 26th, 2015 Clone 21B Riesling grapes were carefully harvested from our estate vineyard while frozen on the vine at -9°C.
Grapes were pressed frozen to yield small amounts of rich, sweet juice. The wine fermented slowly and stopped naturally with a high degree of residual sweetness.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy chilled as a dessert on its own, with a platter of fruit and light cheeses, or drizzled over vanilla ice cream.

I visited the winery and was impressed with the selection - especially the Ice Wine. This Ice Wine is a desert wine and it's sweet. I do recommend it and it's very smooth. Enjoy!!

Great flavor, on the rise I get honey, followed by green apple and a tartness that settles into notes of pineapple that linger.
