in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Darling and Ceres areas. Grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstock Richter 99 and 101- 14, some of the vines received supplementary irrigation from a microirrigation system while in other instances, fruit was grown under dryland conditions. Yields averaged around 8,5 tons per hectare.

in the cellar : The grapes were harvested by hand at 21º to 23º Balling in February and March. The fruit was crushed and gently pressed to extract quality juice. Fermentation took place in stainless-steel tanks at 15° to 16ºC. The fermenting wine was put through a centrifuge separator once the desired sugar and alcohol levels were reached.
