Tannic but smooth, floral and bright. Profound and vital at the same time, a very distinguished wine indeed. The estate's highest vineyard ranging from 800 to 1000 metres above sea level. The vineyard is sheer, craggy and packed with stone and volcanic sand, the soil is poor. The resultant wines are usualyl very fresh and vibrant if rather tight knot and closed when young but blossom fantastically with age.
