Dornier
Dornier

Dornier is situated on ancient deep, decomposed red and yellow granite, Tukulu (yellow) and Oakleaf (red) soils. While varying in clay content, they all have good moisture retention and keep the vine roots cool. These complex soils are vital in giving our wines their unique character, as is the range in altitude of the vineyards - from 100 and 200 metres above sea level. A multitude of aspects add to vineyard diversity and the high mountain peaks trap the cool Atlantic breezes to slow the ripening and create intense flavour compounds
