Viticultural and Weather Conditions

Two days of rain at the end of September and harvest began generally 2 October. The weather was perfect, hot by day and cool by night.

Lagares took a good deal of work and graduations averaged from 12.5 to 13º

Winemaker's Overview

Visited Sra da Ribeira and Zimbro, where vintage had begun on 25th.  Musts looking excellent.  Bomfim started on Thursday 29th.  Weather has been kind, though a certain amount of rain fell on 25th and 26th.  This was good, however, as it softened the skins which were inclined to be thick.  From 27th on, the strong sun and heat greatly helped to ripen the backward grapes. ... As far as can be judged at this early stage, the wines from the best districts should be distinctly above the average.
