The grapes for this single vineyard wine are sourced exclusively from the biodynamically-farmed Atalayas Vineyard in the Casablanca Valley. Its rolling hills offer steep exposures which are the source of an array of mesoclimates. The vineyard is located on slopes facing various directions. Effective canopy management and a green harvest ensure the health of the grapes. The soils are of a granite origin, slightly acidic, with low fertility. Sensitive to erosion, they need to be protected by green cover management.

The grapes were carefully hand-harvested in the early hours of the morning and transported to the winery in refrigerated trucks.

Following hand picking, twenty-four percent of the grapes underwent a bunch selection with seventy-six percent hand- destemming. The must was fermented with native yeasts at 24-26°C, 100% in wooden vats.

Following malolactic fermentation in wood, the wine was aged in French oak for fifteen months.
