Both varieties are on a trellised system in well drained weathered granite and sandstone soils with a high clay content. Supplementary irrigation is given as the vines need it. Being in a warmer region both these varieties enjoy a much earlier ripening period and can be harvested quite early in the season with a high natural acidity and prominent fresh fruit flavours.
