1929 Vintage

Not declared

Viticultural and Weather Conditions

A dry winter was followed by a very hot summer and the little rain that finally fell was too late and did more harm than good. 

Harvest began at the end of September, with some rain, though not enough to delay operations.


Grapes were very ripe though a bit raisinned, in some areas nicer, sweeter and far riper than we had seen for some years. Small yield and high graduations.

Winemaker's Overview

The Vintage began on the 23rd September in ideal weather.  It would have been better had it begun a week earlier as the grapes that survived the drought were quite ripe then.  The picking finished on 2nd October at Bomfim.  The mostos (musts) showed a high degree of sugar even up to 17.5º and plenty of colour and aroma.  They vary somewhat but some tonels promise well.
