in the vineyard : Vineyard locations are selected according to the best quality grapes required for the intrinsics of the blend. Average yields between 8-10 tons/ha.

about the harvest: The grapes from the individual vineyards are harvested at optimal phenolic ripeness, which ensures true varietal character.

in the cellar : The grapes from each vineyard are vinified separately. A portion of the Chardonnay is wood matured and under goes malolactic fermentation. The Chardonnay and Semillon are blended together to create a wine in which the characteristics of the two varietals create a new expression of flavour and balance.
