in the vineyard : 13 and 7 year-old vines trellised on 5-wire Perold. Excess crop and green grapes removed twice before harvesting. This allowed for easy ripening of the fruit, resulting in maximum concentration of tannin and colour. Summer pruning for correct light exposure and canopy density was also done.
