2014 Perpetua

2014 Perpetua

PERPETUA means long-lasting…continuous, which represents to our family the concept of generations – our roots and our future. 100% harvested from three individual blocks in our eastern Osoyoos vineyard estate. Historic French Burgundian Dijon clones were used lending a unique fla vour 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.

Production
The 2014 vintage started well and was near perfect with some calling it the “best ever”! Winter and spring rains followed by encouraging July weather allowed the vines to focus on berry-set along with growing bunches. Hot weather in the summer months and an absence of rain saw the vine respond appropriately, with canopies in excellent balance, however, well thought out drip irrigation was a saviour this year, allowing the vines to maintain sufficient health to ripen. The dry, warm and hot summer produced good growth permitting all varieties to ripen with excellent balance. Cooler autumn months along with further assistance by rigorous leaf plucking and bunch thinning helped promote distinct varietal flavours. When the Okanagan’s warmest and driest growing season concluded on November 4th, it was judged as challenging but ultimately rewarding. Vineyards lived up to their pedigrees producing outstanding wines for the 2014 vintage.
