2018 Spadefoot Toad Sangiovese
A New World spin on an Old World wine
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 Sangiovese
Medium bodied and fresh with luxurious notes of candied cherry, blueberry, vanilla cola and baking spices. Firm tannins, mouthwatering acidity and well-integrated oak character provide excellent structure. Enjoy now after decanting or cellar for 5-7 years.
Grapes were hand harvested from Spadefoot Toad Vineyard in Oliver, BC. These Sangiovese vines are lovingly managed by master organic grower Ron Firman, who tends his small acreage like a garden to create this incredibly special, rare wine. 2018 was a mild growing season in the Okanagan Valley, yielding red wines of balance and freshness.
The wine fermented in insulated bins with daily hand cap management. It aged for 26 months in a combination of 14% new and 86% neutral French oak barrels before bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with classic Italian fare, grilled vegetables, cured meats and mature cheeses.
