Are the true expression of the climate, earth and landscape, which shape a unique terroir. The vines grow in the Sierra de la Ballena, over sunny slopes of rocky soils, which enjoy good drain and limestone presence. In the evenings, very close to the sea and to the Laguna del Sauce, the grapes receive a soft breeze from the Atlantic Ocean.
The chosen varieties and each lot in particular, due to the careful land management, have expressed its own personality and typicity, delivering wines of excellent quality.
This is why, in the current phase of our growth, with established and ripe vines, we elaborate wines which allow appreciating this identity.
Our Reserva line is the maximum varietal quality in Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, as well as the expression of our innovative attitude in the unique and emblematic blend Tannat – Viogner. On the other side, our entry line offers wines which combine a high quality and adaptation to a more frequent drinking.
From a very early phase, our wines have been praised by consumers and experts.
The Merlot Reserva of the first harvest 2005 obtained the Gold Medal in the CataD’Or Uruguay 2006 (Brussels World Contest).
During a Uruguayan wines tasting led in 2008 by the renowned American wine specialist Stephen Tanzer, our wines were located among the best punctuated ones.
In the XIV Salón del Vino Fino in 2009, our Tannat – Viogner 2007 was prized as the best Tannat blend wine in the contest “The consumer’s choice”.
In the last edition of the Mundial du Merlot, which took place in Lugano, Switzerland, in November 2010, our Merlot Reserva 2007 obtained a silver medal.
