Sangiovese is grown at Tumblong (Gundagai) (ironstone-rich red loam) and Murrumbateman (red loam over shale). Mammolo, a lightly coloured, fragrant, musk-like grape accompanies Sangiovese in this wine.
Sangiovese and Mammolo grapes were hand-harvested in the cool of the morning. The grapes were whole-bunch pressed, yielding just the barest pink colour in the juice. A moderately cool fermentation was undertaken before preparation for bottling.
