2015 Perpetua

2015 Perpetua

Perpetua means long-lasting...continuous, which represents to our family the concept of generations - our roots and our future.  Harvested from four individual blocks in our eastern Osoyoos (75%) and Naramata Ranch (25%) vineyard estate. Historic French Burgundian Dijon clones were used lending a unique flavour and aromatic profile. With limited skin contact, the wine was fermented in a mixture of French oak, concrete eggs and stainless steel, and aged sur lie for fifteen months.

Production
The weather in 2015 was pretty close to perfect for grape growing. It began with an early, mild spring, with budburst two weeks early. The mild weather continued and the months of May and June resulted in excellent fruit set. By the time harvest began, the season had broken average heat records! In September, temperatures cooled to near normal, and the rain stayed away providing a long and plentifully harvest which continued into the first couple of weeks of October. Overall, the extended harvest period allowed for uniform ripening and a very nice end to the season.
