Vertical trellis system, Cordon pruning and controlled drip irrigation for Merlot & Shiraz, Alberello for Gellewza and replacement cane pruning.
Hand harvested from 23/08/2004 till 03/09/2004.
The 2004 vintage was characterised by average winter climatic conditions and a particularly cool summer, with the average temperature for July being as much as 3°C lower than the average for the month. This led to a prolonged maturity, giving particularly well structured, balanced wines.
