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

Harvested from four individual blocks in our eastern Osoyoos (88%) and Naramata Ranch (12%) vineyard estate. Historic French Burgundian Dijon clones were used lending a unique flavour and aromatic profile.

Winemaking notes

After gentle pressing, the wines were fermented and aged on fine lees for 15 months in a combination of concrete eggs, stainless steel and French oak barrels. 26 barrels produced.
