This is produced from impressively old vines at between 50 and 60 years old.

The yield in 2010 was a scant 35 hl/ha - very low - yet this is repaid by the quality of the finished wine.

Orchard fruit dominates the nose, allied to briny minerals and zesty citrus notes.

The palate is bright and fresh - an uplifting blend of apple, pear and stone fruit and, unusually, a juicy, grapey finish - very attractive and excellent value.
