Vineyards are high density, planted to a range of clonal material and intensively man handled, nearly all vineyard practices are carried out by hand, to the exception of compost spreading. Ferments include a component of whole bunches treated to oak barrel vinification. Musts are cold soaked for several days and hand plunged throughout the ferments. Two Paddocks spends time macerating on skins, extracting tannin, colour and aromatics before being gently drained and pressed to small French oak barriques for a year.
