Few information about the vintage from the winemaker The 2009 vintage was a sunny vintage. The high temperature during the day enabled the grapes to reach the ideal maturity. We succeed in extracting from our Terroir a very full bodied wine, with a lot of reminiscence of red ripe cherries. The ageing in oak barrel gave to the wine a delicate hint of toasted aroma.
With an abundance of sun together with good soil, our vinyard offers excellent grape growing conditions. Enabling us to grow voluptuous, velvety, perfectly balanced and healthy grapes, which are in essence the prerequisite of great wines.
