The vineyards used for Ramnista have an overall southeast exposure at an altitude of 280-330 m. The estate is divided into a mosaic of 42 vineyard blocks of different mesoclimates with varying exposure, orientation, slope, soil type, rootstock, vine density and age, demanding tailor-made viticultural practices for each vineyard block.

For Ramnista the grapes are sourced mostly from the vineyard blocks with lighter soil type in order to maximize the aromatic intensity and complexity. Hand-picked and fermented in large 5000ltr French oak.

An aromatic complex wine which combines powerfully fresh red fruits and notes of rose, make up the new vintage of 2016 Ramnista. On the palate, gentle tannins and round mouth feel, with supple oak framing the punchy fruit. Grilled red berries, raspberry liqueur and gamey herbs subtly in the background. There is a lovely earthiness that interplays with high-tone fruit so wonderfully. Great Stuff! PWS
