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.
Our 2018 Ehrenfelser has now entered a new phase of flavour development. The primary, intense flavours of apricot and tropical fruits have mellowed, to be replaced with elegant flavours of apple, lime pith, pink grapefruit, and lanolin. The wine has settled into a a period of elegance and easygoingness.
2018 was a hot year in the Okanagan, and we were blessed with a bumper crop of Ehrenfelser. Now the summer of 2021 is the ideal time to enjoy this rare and delicious wine while it's in its prime.
Original tasting note:
100% Ehrenfelser. Luxurious texture and wildly delicious layers of flavours and aromas. Notes of apricot, gooseberry, citrus, honeysuckle, orange blossom, cantalope, and peach, with undertones of tropical fruits. This celebrated rare grape variety thrives in the Okanagan.
Our 2018 Ehrenfelser is a blend of two vineyard sites. Grapes from the hot, southern Okanagan region of Osoyoos at Inkameep Vineyards provide richness, depth, and tropical undertones. Grapes from Summerhill Vineyard in the northern Okanagan region of Kelowna add vibrant freshness and stone fruit character.
