Viticultural and Weather Conditions

"Weather has been unkind to vines" in April and early May, resulting in a small fruit set, though the weather improved considerably thereafter.  July, August and early September were hot, with strong hot winds from the East. 

Harvest began at all three quintas September 27 and 28, though a heavy storm on the 28th suspended picking for a half day.  Grapes were all in by 1 October.

Winemaker's Overview

The yield is shorter than was expected: this is no doubt due to the constant hot weather all through July, Aug and part of September which, as it was accompanied by occasional strong East winds, not only had the effect of hardening the skins of the grapes but also actually burnt up a very considerable proportion of them, more especially in the lower and flatter parts of the vineyards. In spite of this however the mostos (musts) seem clean and promise body and colour.
