VINEYARD
Cerqueira Vineyard is on a west facing slope on the lower side of Black Sage Road between Oliver and Osoyoos. The site is planted to Chardonnay, Merlot, Syrah, Semillon and Cabernet Franc. The soils are a heavy, slightly sandy loam with calcium carbonate covered granite cobbles throughout a deep profile. With the rough surface of the calcium carbonate, vine roots seek out these rocks for the small amount of water to be found.

WINEMAKING
Made in the pétillant-naturel, or ancient method, one of the world’s oldest methods of sparkling wine production. 100% Chardonnay, this wine was bottled before primary fermentation was finished, without filtering, fining or stabilizing.

WINE PROFILE
Concentration of delicate floral notes harmonize beautifully with a bready depth. Strangely complex, earthy and raw; but also light and ethereal.
