Sub soil are saturated with laterites which has good water retention but inhibits vegetative growth. This insures optimum ripening without excessive vegetative growth.

about the harvest: Grapes were picked at optimum physiological ripeness and handled reductive through the whole process to optimize fruit retention.

in the cellar : The grapes were picked at optimum physiological ripeness and handled reductively through the whole process to optimise fruit retention. 3 Months lees contact were allowed followed by bottling.
