Bartier Bros. Semillon 2017

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Cerqueira Vineyard slopes to the south-west collecting the late day sun between Oliver and Osoyoos just below Black Sage Road. It’s the domain of winemaker Michael Bartier who speaks with a richness of thought but makes wine with a sparing hand. The ferment is all wild yeast the result is a strikingly fresh white wine that is laced with savoury dried herbs, grass figs and assorted yellow fruits with a salty mineral edge. I prefer this wine now, but we know it will age effortlessly as it goes down the honey, nutty, rich road to aged sémillon we have experienced in Australia. Perfect with raw oysters.
