The grapes were hand-picked and each of the vineyards were fermented separately in stainless steel with selected yeasts. Regular pump overs took place during fermentation to ensure the desired level of extraction. The different components were aged separately for 12 months in 10% new, 35% 2nd fill, 35% 3rd fill and 20% 4th fill French oak barrels, further imbuing the wine with subtle complexity prior to blending and bottling.

The vines are grown in the Constantia region, where the Mediterranean climate is influenced by cool breezes from the Atlantic Ocean, encouraging complexity and natural balance in the grapes. Average maximum temperatures in summer are 26°C, falling to an average night-time low in winter of 8°C. The grapes for this wine were grown in various blocks that range from 39 meters to 160 meters above sea level; all the
slopes are south to southeast facing. The region comprises Glenrosa, Clovelly, Avalon, Hutton and Cartref soils covers a variety of soil types from red clay and loamy granite soils; duplex soils from sandstone and granitic origin to weathered sandstone. The vines are trained on vertical shoot position trellis systems and are cultivated manually with pruning, canopy management, and harvesting all taking place by hand. The vineyard is sustainably cultivated with biological pest control; while soil health and weed control are managed by a selected mix of winter cover crops
