Terroir Exclusivo
2020 | 750 ml

We contemplate our terroir as a guide that shows its magnificent geography connected to the essence of the vineyard. A real invitation to the exclusive universe of the riches of each terroir. Located in the region of the Serra do Sudeste Gaúcho is the municipality of Encruzilhada do Sul. The relief formed by a plateau with smooth undulations, added to the soil profile of granite origin and the soft nights, results in wines of unique character and great liveliness.

Smell: Bouquet complex and rigorous, reminiscent of ripe fruit with black plum and cherries, and spicy notes that reveal the character acquired during the eight months of aging in French oak.

This exotic variety presents an intense bodied wine where the tannins, added to the natural alcohol content support a remarkable volume in mouth, complemented by its excellent finish.
