CIPES ARIEL 2000
Made of 60% Pinot Noir, 38% Chardonnay, 2% Pinot Meunier, this aged vintage sparkling is showing
great maturity. Creamy, zesty, and opulent with a very fulfilling mouthful. It’s fully developed with aromas
of biscuits, brioche, Meyer lemon, lees, and toasted hazelnuts. The effervescence is smooth and
delicate with bright acidity and a lifting finish.
ESTATE GROWN BIODYNAMIC CHARDONNAY 2020
From their certified organic and biodynamic Kelowna estate vineyard, this chardonnay was taken
off blocks 10 and 19, naturally fermented in a mix of stainless (75%) and new 500L oak. This
creamy chardonnay offers a great balance between volume, texture, and freshness. Ripe orchard
fruits, peach skin, spices, and zest are melting together with a mellow palate and pleasant acidity.
SPADEFOOT TOAD SANGIOVESE 2017
Made in partnership with grape grower Ron Firman at his Spadefoot Toad Vineyard in Oliver, BC,
along with the legendary Canadian artist and activist Robert Bateman, who has drafted an original
illustration especially for the labels, this Sangiovese really follows Summerhill’s vision. With
concentrated flavors of fresh cherries and blueberries with aromatic herbs, this wine shows
character and a great concentrated flavor profile.
SPADEFOOT TOAD SYRAH 2016
Firm and grippy Syrah from the same Oliver Vineyard and aged 35 months in mostly neutral oak
barriques. Aromas include ripe blackberry, cedar, and minimal pepper presence. The palate is
muscular and bold with full-body and scabrous tannins. Very concentrated and dark syrah but still
feels quite balanced.
ORGANIC CABERNET FRANC 2019
85% organic Cabernet Franc, 15% organic Cabernet Sauvignon grown in southern Okanagan
vineyards. The Cabernet Sauvignon portion was fermented in oak foudre before joining the
Cabernet Franc for 12-18 months in oak barrels. Notes of cherry, cassis, cocoa, cedar, and a hint of
smoke. This is a rich and smooth expression of this varietal with brightness and a final cinnamon
