“Old vines” here means more than 20 years. But the wine owes its concentration to the selection of parcels and fruit as much as the vines' age. For there certainly is a rich intensity in this impressive, rounded wine. The spice and pear flavors are lifted by sweet green fruits and white berries. Imported by Frederick Wildman & Sons, Ltd.
