Produced in the traditional method, from the traditional grapes Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, grown organically at Summerhill Estate Vineyard. 

Extended en tirage aging for 18 years was needed to allow this vibrant wine to mellow and harmonize. In the meantime it has become rich, mature and delicious while maintaining its freshness.

Wine Profile
Winemaker Notes
Produced in the traditional method, from the traditional grapes, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, grown organically at Summerhill Estate. Extended en tirage aging for 18 years provides the wine with a wedding band gold colour. Honey mustard on the nose, with ginger and lime on the palate.
Food Pairing Notes
Delightful on it’s own, or with rich complex foods like bone marrow, or with something as simple as fries

Had a bottle at the Sunset Organic Bistro and promptly packed two more back to our home in the Cayman Islands. Just opened the second with friends on Grand Cayman. The two bottles were very consistent: Rich, gold colour with good effervescence. Spice, ginger aromas changing in the glass. Not as sweet as suggested by the 19.5 g. residual sugar (good!). Love it - would buy more without hesitation.
