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 Merlot
Fresh and stylish! Dominant notes of red plum, raspberry, licorice and sage with a hint of strawberry.
Organic grapes were hand harvested from Esther Vineyard (Kaleden, BC) and Sehkon Family Vineyard (Osoyoos, BC). 2019 was a mild growing season in the Okanagan Valley, yielding red wines of balance and freshness.
The Esther and Sehkon portions fermented separately in 10,000L oak foudres. The wine was then racked into neutral oak barrels where it rested for 13 months before blending and bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
Great for sipping on its own or paired with anything from the grill. Try with heavier fish dishes, hard cheeses, wild mushrooms and olives.
