Double Gold - Best of Class - Canadian Wine Awards
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.
A blend of Merlot, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Zweigelt Late Harvests.
Deep and aromatic with an inviting nose of tropical sun-dried fruit, candied ginger and orange peel with dates, figs and toasted hazelnuts. Refreshing on the palate with hints of candied lemon-lime and sun-dried fruit marmalade that turn nutty on the finish.
Grapes left on the vine for the November-January season combined to create a gorgeous dessert wine.
Vinified in old oak barrels that baked in the sun for six years oxidized and concentrated the wine, giving it a rich tawny texture and a high alcohol content, not unlike Madeira.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy as a chilled aperitif or at room temperature as a digestif. Black forest cake, pecan pie or a group of friends compliments this decadent wine extremely well.
