The soils in the vineyard comprise of sandstone with schist/shale and quartz.

Small batches of natural fermentation took place in French oak casks and open fermenters. A portion of whole bunches were included. Soft punch downs were performed. Some batches had extended maceration on the
skins to add to complexity. Malolactic fermentation took place in 300L French oak seasoned barrels. Only a soft prefiltration took place prior to bottling.
