What it tastes like - Lumière is a lighthouse that illuminates; balanced, serene, salty and elegant; the lively subtlety of the “palomino” grape. Its grapes come from the best plot: “La Platera”, located on a gentle hill of the “Pago Miraflores”, facing west, with calcareous subsoils of “tosca cerrada” of “albariza” at a depth of 2 meters. It stands out for its harmony, sumptuousness in the mouth, floral aromatic and notes of gunpowder, typical of a large “Pago”. Wood, soil and fruit are harmoniously united.
