2013 Zweigelt Icewine
Our most complex 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 Zweigelt
This unique Icewine exhibits fascinating contrasts between sweet and savory notes. On the nose and palate, you may find notes of dried cranberry, cherry, strawberry and apple along with hints of white pepper, earth, leather and minerality.
Harvested and pressed on December 7th, 2016 at -9°C with 39% grape sugars at pressing. Grown at Summerhill Vineyard, and just down the road at the Eidse Brothers’ Vineyards in pristine Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, BC.
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
Serve chilled with rich, intense cheese such as Roquefort or Gorgonzola, salted dark chocolate, and candied nuts.
Sweetness code: 15
Cellar in a cool dark place for up to 15 years.
