This wine represents the typicity of this region’s alkaline soils and the dynamic of the warm day/cold night diurnal shift climate that allow the grapes to ripen and retain freshness. It is made from the two most widely planted white varieties in the Cienega Valley from vines ranging in age from 25 to 60 years old.

The wine is completely dry, but generous with the fruit character. It tastes like ripe peaches and lemon zest and texture a reminiscent of ocean water.
