As purists we have always believed that to produce a wine of true character, it is essential that nature be the primary winemaker. Our farm is blessed with cool breezes during the hot summer months and stony, clay-rich soil, giving our wines their unique personality and style. A philosophy of minimal intervention and environmentally conscious farming methods are just some of our secret ingredients.

Plots totalling 4.5 hectares in calcareous clay and Greywacke soils, on south-westerly facing slopes at about 400-450 metres of altitude. The vines, of an average age of 20 and 23 years, are planted at a density of 5000 per hectare and trained in the Guyot Cordon method.

Grapes are soft-crushed and the must fermented for 15-25 days at 18-20° C in small French oak barrels (about 30% new annually), in which malolactic fermentation occurs naturally during a year of maturing on the lees for approximately 12 months. The wine, of about 13.5% alcohol is lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling.
