“Very pretty and aromatic with plum and orange peel with floral undertones. Medium to full body, with very fine tannins and a beautiful, fine-grained finish. Drinkable now, but a year or two will real show it off. From organically grown grapes. Drink after 2022.” - James Suckling


“This comes from their own organically grown and head-pruned vineyards at 500 to 700 meters in altitude on limestone-rich slopes. It fermented in concrete tanks with indigenous yeasts and was kept in concrete for six to seven months. It’s pure fruit, like biting into a bunch of ripe grapes, juicy and refreshing.” - Luis Gutierrez
