Summerhill Pyramid Winery Summerhill Vineyard Riesling Demeter Certified Biodynamic 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOld vines (riesling clone 21B planted in 1978) and certified Demeter biodynamic vineyards are at the heart of this riesling, fermented outdoors with the ambient vineyard yeasts in the Summerhill Vineyard in 2017. The fruit is whole cluster pressed and fermented cold and left with a healthy dose of sugar (25.9 g/L RS) to counter its naturally crisp acidity (9.8 TA). I’m impressed with how this wine has evolved in bottles putting on a little weight and intensifying its bright, stony, lime. It is a real treat, and at 11.4 alcohol, you can almost gulp it. Use the sugar to tame a favourite savoury, spicy curry dish. Well done.Tasted: 30 September 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 28.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: Summerhill Pyramid WineryDistributors: AmoVino Distributors Ltd
