Winemaker’s Notes The grapes  were picked in extremely small, selected parcels, from high density vines in Los Lingues, coming from rocky slopes, where the roots absorb the minerality and freshness of this volcanic basaltic soils from the the unique Cerro Basalto block.  The vineyards are in the North East part of our mountains, and soils have a high concentration of iron who develope a elegant and rare expression of this blend.
