2021 Pinot Noir
Juicy, balanced and fresh
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% Pinot Noir
Notes of strawberry, violet and green tobacco delight the nose and carry through the palate where flavours of red cherry and crushed gravel deepen and refresh. Lifted acidity, fine tannins and a long finish round out this beautifully balanced Pinot Noir.
Pinot Noir grapes were harvested from three pristine, certified organic vineyards located in distinct areas of the Okanagan Valley: Park Hill Vineyard (Okanagan Falls, BC), Esther Vineyard (Kaleden, BC) and Park Hill Vineyard (Oliver, BC). 2020 was a moderately cool growing season in the Okanagan Valley, yielding exceptional red wines of balance and freshness.
A portion of the wine fermented in a large, 10,000L oak foudre while the remainder fermented in small totes. After pressing, it was barreled into neutral oak barriques for six months before blending.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy with pan-roasted chicken thighs or earthy lentil and mushroom dishes.
