Kelowna icewine is ‘perfect’

A Kelowna icewine has received a perfect 100-point score and a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco International Wine Competition.

Summerhill Pyramid Winery’s 2013 “Small Lot” Semillon Icewine received the distinction last week, something Stephen Cipes, the winery’s founder and proprietor, said was “an honour.”

This year, the San Francisco International Wine Competition saw 4,200 entries from 31 countries around the world.

Summerhill’s perfect score comes on the heels of another high honour.

In May, the winery was found to have the best Chardonnay icewine in the world, at the Chardonnay du Monde Competition in France. That competition saw more than 750 entries from 38 countries.

Summerhill Pyramid Winery has been open in Kelowna for more than 25 years, and is Canada’s largest certified organic winery.

Winemaker Eric von Krosigk oversees the portfolio of BC VQA wines, and the winery is also home to the Sunset Organic Bistro.
