Each Eremitas white wine tells a story of the Rabigato grape, with variations reflecting the specific vineyard parcel. Take, for instance, the Eremitas Paulo de Tebas. Located 400 meters above sea level, its vines grow in medium-depth soil with a unique quartz micro-fault running through the plot. The grapes undergo a traditional vinification process in which they are harvested by hand, then gently punched down (pigeage) for three hours in a granite basin (lagar) before being pressed vertically. The must then flows naturally by gravity to concrete vats in a cool, underground cellar for spontaneous fermentation without temperature control. The wine rests for a year in these same tanks, allowing the terroir and grape character to fully express themselves.
