1919 Vintage

A very few shippers declared.

Viticultural and Weather Conditions

Damaging frosts over the winter and a flood in mid-February interrupted the shipping of the prior year's wines down to Gaia.

Vintage started 18 September, the weather was generally good but variable with some rain which did no harm.

Winemaker's Overview

The Vintage began at Zimbro on the 18th September and at the other quintas on the 22nd.  The mostos (musts) have 14ºto 14.25º at Zimbro and the lowest degree at any of the quintas was 12.5º.  Colour medium, not much life or aroma evident.  Quantity larger than expected.  Weather fine throughout vintage except for one or two showers.

Our own 1919s have turned out very much as expected - not very big but very serviceable wines.
