in the vineyard : The grapes for this wine were derived from a four hectare vineyard, planted in 1990 at 3,704 vines per hectare, and at an altitude of 160m above sea level. The vines, planted on a west-facing slope, are trellised in order to keep the grapes cool and healthy.

The rainfall during the winter before the vintage, as well as the growing season (September – December) was less than average. The annual rainfall was 680mm for the 2005/2006 season compared to the long-term annual average of 700mm.

about the harvest: The harvest took place on 24 February 2006. The grapes were picked by hand - at an average sugar level of 24° Balling - and placed in small baskets to prevent bruising.
