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 and Naramata Ranch vineyard estates. Historic French Burgundian Dijon clones were used for this Chardonnay, lending a unique flavour and an aromatic profile.
Bright fruit and incredibly fresh acidity highlight the 2018 vintage of Perpetua. Notes of stone fruit, citrus, and flint are highlighted by a fine lemon acidity and seductive textures. Harmonious integration of fruit, oak, and texture.
The 2018 harvest began earlier than anticipated due to above average growing degree days in the spring. Summer arrived with cooler temperatures, encouraging the fruit to develop beautiful acidity and allowing more time for full flavour retention. One of the coolest Septembers on record followed, slowing down the sugar accumulation and allowing the fruit to fully develop phenologically. Harvest concluded on November 8, with the extended season yielding a crop of uniformly ripened fruit with mouthwatering freshness and acidity.
