YELLOW SOIL: these vineyards are located along the coast, where the soil has a sandy-clay structure and characteristic yellow colour. The soil is relatively light, imbuing the wines with freshness and complex scents. Wine produced here includes Zagra, and is savoury and mineral, achieving the fullest possible expression of the three elements inherent to yellow soil, proximity to the sea and well-ventilated slopes.
