HARVEST DETAILS The Vineyard is south facing on sandy loam soil. GDC trellis system with 800 vines per acre or 2000 per hectare. Most vines are 10-30 years old, all grapes are hand-picked. The 2017 harvest produced an above average crop with good ripeness levels and most importantly a perfect tartaric/malic acid balance, providing base wines which required minimum intervention in the winery and which truly express the vineyard and vintage.
