1924 Vintage

Widely declared, this was an excellent vintage, which produced very high quality wine in small quantities. 

The best wines still retain their structure and intensity as well as good fruit, which shows the strength and quality of this great year.  Well cellared, the wines will last for years but will not improve further.

Viticultural and Weather Conditions

Summer was unusually cool but dry, however a fair amount of rain in early September improved the situation.  Weather during harvest, which began 29 September, was satisfactory.  Quantity was below the average.

Winemaker's Overview

Vintage began at Zimbro and Sra da Ribeira on 29 Sept, elsewhere on 6 October under favourable conditions, weather being fine throughout the gathering.  The mostos (musts) showed good colour and life.  That the '24s will turn out to be better than an ordinary vintage seems to be the general opinion.  The quantity, however, has been considerably reduced by the queima (sunburn) which occurred three times during the early stages of ripening.
