The grapes were from the La Escultura Estate vineyard in the Casablanca Valley. The soil is composed of shallow clay loam. The clonal selection includes 115 and 117, most of which was planted in 1996. The vineyard is trellised to VSP and drip irrigated.
All the grapes were handpicked on the 23rd and 24th April and then deposited into stainless steel tanks. The must then underwent a 5-10 day cold maceration at 8 degrees. The must was fermented using wild yeasts at a temperature between 28 and 32 degrees. The wine was then aged for 11 months in French oak barrels, 57% of which were new.
The wine has a pH of 3.58, TA of 5.13 grammes per litre (Tartaric), and a residual sugar of 2.97 grammes per litre.
