The vertical trellised vines were planted between 12 and 20 years ago on undulating hills of decomposed granite and weathered sandstone. Where the clay subsoils are too structured and porous, supplementary irrigation is used to ensure balanced foliage and even ripening. These vineyards are planted up to 80 km from the coast with geographical influence from mountains and the cold Atlantic coast.

Grapes were harvested at optimal maturity, destemmed and gently crushed to stainless steel tanks. The use of cultured and natural yeast helped to unlock the perfumed fruit profile of the grapes. After fermentation, 20% of the wine was matured in neutral French oak barrels for eight to 10 months; the remainder matured in stainless steel tanks with French oak staves
