Climate / Quality of the soil : Cool breeze micro-climate with temperatures cooler than the valley providing our grapes with a slow ripening ability. Our vines thrive on the decomposed high mineral granite Oakleaf with sub –dominant Glenrosa and Tukulu soil formations on the mountain. The blocks are carefully manipulated for high concentrated flavour with medium (7 – 10 t/ha) yields. Hand harvest in February at dawn to keep grapes cool for vinification.

 

Wine making process :
