It is acknowledged as one of the finest sites for growing top quality grapes because of its combination of unique soil composition and having a very specific microclimate.

Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    The vibrant bright colour is combined with a deliciously fruity nose of black forest fruit. On the palate it is smooth and rich, with silky concentrated flavours that massage your throat, it also has ripe tannins and real length.
