The volcanic soils allied to proximity to the sea lends the wines a distinctly brisk, saline character. Hundreds of micro-vineyards are enclosed in small walls just a few metres square to protect them from the wind and sea-spray. These walls are made from basalt stones, which had to be removed from the ground before any planting could take place.

The grapes are harvested manually in 40kg baskets. The whole bunches are pressed and a natural racking occurs within 24 hours. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats with lees stirring for additonal texture.

Grape: 85% Arinto, 15% Verdelho

Tasting Notes: Floral notes of guava followed by hints of grapefruit rind and oyster-shell. A medium-bodied round palate, but with impressive focus and intensity; long and precise.

Food Match: Cured mackerel or grilled octopus.

An alternative to: Alabarino or Gruner Veltliner.

Closure: Natural Cork

Farming Practices: Organic - Vegan - Contains Sulfites
