1931 Vintage

Declared by only a very few shippers given the Depression, but those wines produced are exceptional.

Viticultural and Weather Conditions

Very little rain over the winter, and excepting a few hot days at the end of July an unusually cool summer so the grapes never ripened properly. The rain and warmer weather of September was almost too late to be of service. Harvest began in the last week of September, with summer heat at last, but accompanied by a drying East wind, and some unsettled days.

Winemaker's Overview

In the finest vineyards some good wine with plenty of colour is promised but elsewhere the mostos (musts) are thin and green.  There was however very little if any mildew this year and consequently no escolha (selection) was necessary... As the vines were free of disease and the fermentation of the musts regular it is probably that the wines will be sound.
