The vineyard is located between 400 and 600 meters altitude, in narrow and dizzying terraces with strong south-facing slopes, acidity, of rough textures. Developed from granite (granodiorites). The 2015 Falcoeira was quite a warm harvest, but the extreme heat in the summer caused the plant to be blocked and eventually gave way to a late harvest with a fantastic balance between ripeness and freshness.

The wine is complex, fresh, balanced and intense. There is a pure reflection of terroir, mineral, sour red fruit, cherries, eucalyptus, sweet spices and white pepper. And all this with a lively, pleasant acidity. A wine with balance and elegance everywhere. 2254 bottles produced and this scarce edition has been awarded 94/100 Parker.

Telmo Rodriguez Winery
What makes Telmo Rodrigues wines unique is that he chooses indigenous grape varieties that are also pruned in an indigenous way. As a result, the vines on his vineyards are not guided along long wires but as an independent shrub. Telmo also chooses to place shrubs wider apart. This way has the advantage that a shrub has more opportunities to find the scarce moisture / food, but there is also more shade and in addition, this also leads to healthier shrubs and this fits the organic approach of Telmo Rodriguez.
