in the vineyard : Unirrigated, untrained vines which produce a very good quality berry.

about the harvest: In the southern hemisphere summer lasts from December until the end of February. The grapes are harvested from mid-January until mid-April.

in the cellar : After the berries have been destalked, the juice and the skins are left together for 24 hours. This causes the juice to extract extra flavours from the skins. After 24 hours the freerunning juice is run off and fortified by adding spirits.
