in the vineyard : Winter rainfall approximately 600mm per annum. Limited irrigation of between 50 and 100mm is applied during drier summers in order to allow for optimum development and ripening of grapes. Soils vary from decomposed granites to well drained sandy loam with gravel underlays.

in the cellar : Grapes were harvested at 23°B and juice obtained by subjecting the whole bunches to a gentle tank press. After allowing to settle overnight the clean juice was separated and wine yeast added. Initially temperature was controlled at around 15°C but towards final stages of fermentation the temperature was allowed to rise to approximately 20°C thereby facilitating the best conditions to complete the process. After clarification the wine was stabilized for protein and tartrates.
