Cloned from French plant material, the vines are grafted onto Richter 99 and Richter 110 rootstocks and grow in Tukulu soils. The vines are vertically trellised on hedge systems of varying height according to vigour. They receive supplementary irrigation through a drip system when necessary. The south-west facing vineyards are exposed to the cooling effect of False Bay breezes which protract ripening and make for a concentrated intensity of flavour.
The grapes were harvested at the end of January, between 22°to 23,5°Balling. They were crushed and cool-fe rmented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks between 13° and 15°C.
