In the southern exposure of the hillside Ayler Kupp, the summit rises 170 meters above the plain. The lower part of the slope benefits from centuries of weathering from the higher slate slope. The most finely weathered stones collect here due to the erosion from rain. The small fragments are available to the vines as a source of minerals. The long-lasting dryish wine comes from old vines and is dense, exciting, and always a little salty on the palate.
