Summerhill Pyramid Winery Estate Grown Biodynamic Chardonnay Demeter Certified 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaIt is safe to say everything is coming together at Summerhill, as evidenced by the 2019 chardonnay release that is a Demeter certified wine in a much needed redesigned bottle/label package that befits the quality and direction of this winery. The small block of chardonnay vines (2.4 acres) that make up this wine was planted in 2005. The grapes were handpicked and fermented on their native yeast in stainless steel with minimal sulphur inputs. The style is round and soft with a touch of sweet yellow fruit, but otherwise clean and very pleasant on the palate. A little drier version would be a home run, and I hope to see that direction as this wine label evolves over the next five years. Ready to drink and would be perfect with roasted chicken or a spicy tuna sushi roll. Good value.Tasted: 30 September 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 30.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: Summerhill Pyramid WineryDistributors: AmoVino Distributors Ltd
