The viness are situated on south to south-westerly facing slopes at altitudes of 60m and 80m above sea level. The vines, grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstocks Richter 99, R110 and 101-114, received supplementary irrigation by means of an overhead sprinkler system.

The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 22 to 23º Balling during February and March. After pressing, the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks with wood chips and kept on the fermentation lees for three months prior to blending.
