The wine from the aromatic Noria grape was harvested in cabinet quality. The grapes were gently processed and macerated for 16 hours at a reduced temperature with limited access to air oxygen at all stages of production. Modern technology using physical control of fermentation allowed us to produce a pleasant wine of intense fruity aromas and flavours in the category of semi-dry wines.
An eighteenth-century well and horses
The grazing horses at the vahadl’s well – well characterize the life of the local people. This ethos is the meeting point between the respect for tradition that typifies our approach to winemaking and the pursuit of perfection in today’s world of grape breeding.
Tradition is represented by the fan well, which is one of the oldest ways of obtaining water from a well. It is much simpler than the wheel well and is also an excellent example of balance and expediency. The structure rests on a solid foundation and is made up of three wooden parts that are joined together to form a balanced unity. The water in the bucket gets itself up, there’s nothing there to go wrong – which is the opposite of the things we use nowadays.
We note that the two wells located on the estate are as old as the manor house and the cellar – they date from the second half of the 18th century.
The horses represent the pursuit of beauty, of excellence, of thoughtful breeding and breed development. We no longer keep them for the work, but for the experiences they provide. In today’s world, horses are symbols of nobility of movement, harmony and beauty.
We do not drink wine just because it contains alcohol. What we look for in wine is complex colour, flavour, aroma, experience and quality.
