decomposed high mineral granite Oakleaf with sub–dominant
Grenrosa and Tukulu soil formations on the mountain. The blocks are

Controlled irrigation and 7 strand hedge system with moveable
foliage wires. The high trellis system ensures perfect vertical shoot
positioning. Hand harvest in February at dawn to keep grapes cool for
