Granitic soil. Solidified magma, quartz, red clay, volcanic, not explosive, happened deep inside the volcano. De-stemmed then each grape variety worked separately, all vinified and aged in stainless steel, only punching down. The Muscat of Alexandria has two harvests – the first half fermented on skins, after which the Semillon skins are added and left for 3 months. Post-fermentation maceration generated flor and some volatile acidity. The second half is harvested fermented on skins for 3 months. Corinto aka Chasselas is harvested and stays on skins for 7 months. The juice is pumped from the top leaving skins behind. The Semillon spends two weeks on skins after fermentation.
