in the vineyard : Trellised vines and bush vines aged 10-20 years yielded the grapes for this wine. The vineyards recieved supplementary drip irrigation and produced 8-15 tons per hectare.

about the harvest: The grapes were handpicked at optimum ripeness, selected, de-stemmed and gently crushed. Cold maceration took place at 10-12C prior to fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Daily pump-overs were conducted for optimum extraction of colour and flavour. Wines from selected tanks were blended and fined, and matured for 6  months before bottling.
