in the vineyard : In-depth scientific research is embarked on before planting new vines – great care is taken to seek out optimum vineyard sites (aspect, soil types, altitude, etc.) that would be most suitable to a particular varietal genetic clone. The vineyards are carefully trellised and the canopy managed in such a way so as to ensure optimum phenolic ripeness of the grapes. Two ‘green harvests’ are done annually whereby the crop is reduced to between 6-8 tons per hectare to intensify flavours.
