Hand pruning, hand-picking, minimal irrigation and summer pruning to remove any imperfect or unripe bunches result in a yield of about 2-3 tonnes per hectare. This ensures that only the finest grapes actually make it into the bottle. Picking usually occurs in mid to late March allowing for a long ripening period that lets the grapes develop to create wines with length, complexity, balance and structure.
