in the vineyard : Grapes are sourced from low bearing (7 tons/ha) bush vines with an average age of 4 - 10 years with complex, well-structured fruit. The vines are grafted on 101-14Mgt and planted on loamy clay on the lower slopes of the mountain.

about the harvest: Grapes were harvested at 24º Balling in February.

in the cellar : The wine is fermented on skins for ± 7 days, until the juice is drawn off at 0° Balling to retain soft tannins. Maturation takes place partly in French oak barrels, and some in tank.
