Vineyard The vineyards lie at 45-60 metres above sea level, with a rocky limestone soil. Cuttings were supplied by the on-site nursery.
Winery The grapes were destemmed, gently crushed, and fermented in stainless steel for between ten and fifteen days at 28-30°C. The wine was then transferred to oak barrels for malolactic fermentation, racked, blended and returned to barrel for eight months' ageing.
Taste Fragrant fruity aromas, particularly plum, followed by delicate mint and green tea notes. On the palate it is full-bodied and smooth with a long finish.
