Wine Description

 A special wine resulting from a meticulous selection of the very best grapes on the property. The vineyards extend on rolling banks of the river Miño creating a natural amphitheater, bathed in extraordinary sunlight during the midday hours.

The vines are planted on trellises so that the fruit, in low-yield production, grow in optimum conditions and reaching their peak quality.

The vineyards enjoy an exceptional micro-climate, in the most southern and sunniest area of the D.O. Rias Baixas. Moreover, the majority of these vineyards has a perfect orientation and enjoy constant sun reflection from the river Miño and therefore obtains early ripening and complex structures, yet retaining the integrity of the wine.
