This elegant wine with a big structure offers a wealth of aromas and substantial longevity. Those premium characteristics are due to a low yield per acre, delayed harvesting of selected grapes and maturation in steel vats for at least one year before bottling.

- low yield per acre of selected grapes that are slightly overripe:
- soft pressing of the whole grapes,
