It's Summertime!! No? Summerhill time, maybe??

Tonight we opened up an old favorite to pair with our lemon chicken stir fry dinner.

2012 Summerhill Ehrenfelser

Summerhill is one of only a handful of Okanagan wineries to take a shot at this rare grape, and they do it the best, IMO.

The nose will almost be overwhelmed by fruit. I get apricot, orange, cantaloupe and citrus. Throw in a touch of honeysuckle and I could put my nose into a glass of this wine all night. Of course, I'd rather drink it! Rated a "2" on the sweetness scale, the palate will be awash with tropical fruits. It paired very well with our stir-fry, and would be a perfect accompaniment to spicy foods. It would also be perfect to just open and enjoy. 88.
