Our Verdelho vineyard was planted in 2013 on a south-facing slope with east to west row direction. The soils are of terra-rossa formation with a high percentage of shale, providing a well-drained, cool root environment. The vineyard is on a lower slope of the hill where it is warmer and more suited for the style of wine we set out to achieve. During the 2018 vintage the Verdelho vineyard was harvested twice at 20 brix and 23.5 Brix . By doing so a wider fruit profile was achieved ranging from light musket tones to more full fruit with tropical nuance.
