Wine Concept

Expressing the potential of this grape variety and its terroir, giving rise to a unique and individual well balanced varietal wine.

Agriculture

Integrated Production (certified)

A dry winter followed by above average temperatures in spring and summer, gave rise to an early start to the harvest. Although temperatures continued to be high, there was no extreme heat during the vintage, and the dry conditions were excellent for fruit quality, producing wines with intense, persistent, aromatic fruit.

SOIL TYPE
Granite/schist base with clay/loam soil.
