From the Cerquiera Vineyard on the Black Sage bench comes this 100% Semillon, a grape more commonly found in Bordeaux partnered with Sauvignon Blanc or as a stand alone in Australia.
A nose full of meyer lemon, blood orange, delicate white flowers and granny smith apples transitions to a bright, crisp palate with melon, green apple, yellow apples, ginger and citrus.
On the lower side of Black Sage Road between Oliver and Osoyoos, this vineyard has a gentle West facing slope. 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 on this surface. It is controversial to say that these vines are "feeding" off these minerals, but that's exactly what we believe is happening and it shows in the wines.
