Tasting notes

Perpetua is a combination of richness, creamy texture and finely woven bright acidity anchored by pear, lemon curd and baking spice flavours. Perpetua shows an alluring purity and seamless integration of all the elements, with good length and intensity.

Viticultural notes

100% harvested from three individual blocks in our eastern Osoyoos vineyard estate. Historic French Burgundian Dijon clones were used lending a unique flavour and aromatic profile.

With limited skin contact, a select portion was fermented in new French oak, and aged sur lie for nine months with gentle hand-stirring every two weeks 26 barrels produced.
