7 Plots, 7 different soils. The expression of diversity
With Ondarre 7 Parcelas we try to evidence the diversity of soils where develops the vineyard of Viana. Located between 400 and 700 meters altitude, at least seven typologies have been described, contributing each one with different peculiarities: – limestone and shallow soils that produce small grain grapes, high color potential in fresh years, and great aptitude for aging – emergence of gypsum and limestone, on slopes with south-east orientation, resulting in wines with moderate degree and good acidity – and deep, light and well-drained soils with good performance in dry years, medium-grain grapes and wines with intense aromas of red fruits. All these components occur in this wine and embody the diverse and interesting vineyard, characteristic of our area.
