2021 Estate Grown Biodynamic Pinot Noir
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 and Biodynamic certified Pinot Noir
Perfumed and seductive. Opens with an elegant nose of crushed rose petal, spiced plum and strawberry jam. On the palate, lifted acidity is seamlessly integrated between concentrated layers of fresh and candied cherry, cranberry and star anise. Fine yet firm tannins contribute depth and tension, leading to a long, mineral driven finish. Decanting recommended.
Grapes were hand harvested from our certified Biodynamic Block 18 and 19. 2020 was a moderately cool growing season, yielding exceptional red wines of balance and freshness.
Based on Biodynamic principles, this Pinot Noir was naturally fermented in a 10,000-liter oak tank with ambient farm yeasts, truly reflecting the vintage and terroir of our Demeter certified Summerhill Vineyard in 2020. The wine was pressed off the skins and racked into neutral oak barriques where it rested for three months before bottling. Unfined and unfiltered.
Food Pairing Notes
Try with pan-seared chicken thighs, roasted root vegetables or hearty lentil dishes.
