Taboexa is a 13ha estate at 300m above sea level, with sandy and granitic soil typical of the region. The Arantei estate is at just 30m above sea level - with clay and pebbly soil. Harvest typically begins in the middle of September - grapes are hand harvested and collected in 20 kilo crates. 70% of the grapes are macerated before pressing for 6 hours at a controlled temperature. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel using natural yeasts, and maturation on the lees is also in stainless steel. The mineral and fruity character from the Arantei grapes is balanced by the freshness of the Taboexa grapes.

A classic Chardonnay from Southern Burgundy - fine buttery and floral notes on the nose and a wine

presence of oak, whilst on the finish there is some underlying minerality and a hint of citrus zestiness

Serve at 18ºC in a Bordeauxstyle glass.The grapes for this wine come from organic vineyards of Los Morros and Los Robles in the Maipo Valley. Soils are alluvial, rich in minerals with good drainage and irrigated by water from the snow thaw. The grapes were hand picked. The Maipo zone has ideal conditions for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. The Maipo River regulates the temperatures naturally and prevents frost and extremes of heat and cold. The spring of 2013 was slightly colder than the historic average, followed by a summer with high temperatures, which accelerated ripening and prevented the delays that were initially predicted for the 2014 harvest. Rainfall in the Maipo Valley was concentrated in the winter months and reached approximately 250 mm, which is well below the nearly 450 mm recorded during the 2012–2013 season. The grape reception area includes a double selection conveyor belt that allows selection first at the bunch level and again after destemming. Vinification begins with a 4–5-day prefermentation cold soak at 8ºC followed by alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks with native yeasts at 26ºC and a pumpovers program determined by enological criteria. Malolactic fermentation takes place naturally in tanks and barrels, where the wine is aged at controlled temperatures for 12 months. It is neither fined nor stabilized; it is just lightly filtered with a 1-micron cartridge filter priorto bottling.Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.This wine is Organic.

The climate is Mediterranean, and the area receives winds from the south and morning fog. Springs are frost-free, and summers are very warm, which encourages proper ripening. Summers are hot but with cool night temperatures. The soils are medium to very deep, of alluvial origin, and have a silty-loam texture that allows for good vine development. The grapes were hand picked in late April and early May and submitted to a week-long pre-fermentation cold treatment at 8ºC (46ºF) to extract more fruit characteristics. Alcoholic fermentation took place at 25º–28ºC (77º–82ºF) with pumpovers determined by daily tastings through the end of the process. A post-fermentation maceration followed, and then the wine was devatted, separating the free-run wine from the skins. Malolactic fermentation took place naturally. 20% of the wine was aged in French oak for 6 months and then blended for a more complex character.Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.This wine is Organic.

light fresh style. Fermentation takes place at relatively high temperatures to reduce fruit flavour. This
makes a very neutral wine which is perfect for the production of sherry. The wine undergoes
malolactic fermentation. In the February after harvest the wine is fortified with grape brandy up to
15% abv. Once at this stage the wine is then added to the youngest Criadera in the Solera. The wine

do Peso grapes – they had been using them in their Vinha do
Monte wines since the early 1990s – and jumped at the
opportunity to purchase the estate in 1996. Situated in the south of
the Alentejo, in the sub-region of Vidígueira, the Herdade do Peso
estate covers a total of 457 hectares, 160 hectares of which are
currently planted with vines. Winemaker Luís Cabral de Almeida
makes expressive and generous wines that reflect the warmer
climate of the Alentejo.
Despite its southerly location, Vidígueira is one of the cooler
Alentejo sub-regions and benefits from cool Atlantic air funnelled
inland from the coast by a gap in the surrounding mountains.
Limestone soils help to control vine vigour and lend elegance to
the wines. All of the Herdade do Peso vineyards are sustainably
farmed and an on-site dam provides much-needed water to
irrigate the vineyards during the Alentejo summers.

Mediterranean summers of southern France, where the Grenache and Cinsault grape varieties have

name from the windmill ('molino') that sits on the edge of the
vineyards where they produce their fruit. In contrast to other
windmills, which turn in windy conditions, this particular windmill is
"loco", the Spanish for crazy, as it turns only on calm, still days.
The vineyards are located at an altitude of 500 metres above sea
level. They are dry-farmed and the clay soil is poor, meaning that
the roots of the vines grow deep into the earth in their search for
minerals and nutrients. This helps to ensure healthy, ripe, full of
flavour grapes. The Monastrell vineyards are over 18 years old,
while the Syrah vines are slightly younger, averaging around 15
The grapes were gently crushed before being fermented and
macerated on their skins for 10 days at a controlled temperature

grape processing preserved the natural fruit purity and freshness
