1950 Vintage

Known as the "Lady's Vintage", these wines are delicate and subtle. Declared by some but not all Port houses.

This Vintage has been fully mature for many years, but well cellared the best wines will be fine for years to come. Still a pleasant and fruity wine, but most now resemble tawnies more than Vintage port.

Viticultural and Weather Conditions

The dry weather continued through April until May, at which time the rain came to stay until the second half of June. Harvesting began on the 25th of September under ideal conditions. The musts were of excellent quality.

Winemaker's Overview

The vintage started on 25 September. Conditions throughout were ideal, cool nights and never too hot during daytime. Graduação (graduation or scale of sweetness, i.e. Baumé) was 13.5 / 14. Colour was very good and the musts looked very nice. The Quintas produced more than had been anticipated. There seems every hope that the wines of this vintage from the best districts should turn out to be really good.
