Taste Profile This wine (of which 30,000 bottles were produced) is from a single vineyard of 2.8 hectares located near Embonas at an altitude of 750-800 metres with a north west orientation. The vines are 15-18 years old and planted on stony ground with light clay. A classic but gentle method of vinification has been followed resulting in a delicate, fresh wine. There are notes of pear, honey and lime, excellent acidity and a quite distinctive minerality.
