Straw coloured with medium intensity. The nose shows aromas of apple, lemon and vanilla. The wine is wel balanced with good mousse. Pleasing flavours of apple pear and citrus. Grapefruit and almonds on the lingering finish.

Superb value for a local bubbly that's nicely dry but has a lovely fruity nose with those Riesling grapes. Bought a bottle in Kelowna this summer, wish I bought a case! Will be scouting for you in Vancouver! Looking forward to it going 100% organic one day! Thanks Summerhill!

Most wines give me a headache (chemicals). This one is organic; no headache. When anyone asks me what I would like as a gift, I say 'Cipes Brut'. It is, hands down, my absolute favourite wine. Introduced to me by the 'Newcomers Club' brunch at Summerhill Winery. Hurrah!~

This won our "blind test" at a champagne night with friends. I want to know how Cipes is pronounced, please. Long "i" or short?

This wine went up against eight other sparkling wines in Rossland's Mountain Sips Wine Tasting Club. It came out as number one for its aroma and flavor complexity, balance of mousse and acidity and ability to initiate strange noises "mmm" "hmmm" "wow ummm" "yummm". Great sparkling wine for the value!

Fresh and dazzling with juicy yellow apples on the nose, opening up to a crisp and acidic Granny Smith Green and a toasty, warm finish.
Pairings: lemon rosemary chicken, buttery pastry (almond), hickory smoked potato chips

We love this wine! My wife's brother and family from down east say it's the best sparkling wine they've ever had.
