The vineyard is planted with a density of 8000 plants per hectare, reducing yields but increasing intensity. With enormous concentration, it is super-rich but not quite over the top. Yellow fruits are the evident hallmark here, with pineapple acidity and a dash of pepper. Age for at least five years. Screwcap. Imported by Michael Skurnik Wines. Cellar Selection.
