This pure Syrah comes from a plot of 39-year-old vines grown on granite and black mica soils, at 350 meters altitude. The estate is certified organic by ECOCERT. The vines are farmed naturally using plant-based treatments, and the soil is ploughed by horse. The grapes are harvested by hand, and carefully sorted.
