This is a really, really good wine. 95 points.
-Stephen Spurrier, Consultant Editor, Decanter Magazine; Organizer,
Judgment of Paris 1976

Fresh and vibrant primary fruit among the rich, mature, aged character. The complexity, creaminess and mouthfeel can only come with extended sur lie bottle aging.

Estate grown at Summerhill Vineyard in Kelowna, BC. The grapes were picked with a long sur lie bottle aging period envisioned. Situated in the North Okanagan with WNW facing slopes on ancient limestone rich lake bottom silt soil, this vineyard is especially suited to growing grapes for traditional method sparkling wine, and this wine is a testament to the outstanding and unique growing conditions of the site. 

The bottles were aged 17.5 years in bottle on the lees before disgorgement in small batches began September,
2019.
