ageing : Dink now or cellar for 4 to 6 years.

in the vineyard : Vineyards are fifteen years old and planted on the northern slopes of the farm. The vines are trained onto a five-wire trellis system to maximise exposure to the sunlight and sea breeze. The use of minimal handling and insecticides shows our approach towards enviro-friendly farming methods.

Deep fertile Oakleaf, Clovelly and Tukulu soils. The 20 to 30 cm of decomposed granite becomes a good mixture of sand to sand-lime-clay soil medium. It is then followed by 50 to 60 cm of wet zone, as a result of limited amounts of clay, with apparent granite origin.

about the harvest: The berries ripened in different stages during the time of harvest.
