1951 Vintage

Not declared, some single quinta bottlings.

Winemaker's Overview

Vintage started in the three quintas [Bomfim, Zimbro and Sra da Ribeira] on 1st October. One or two showers on 30th/1st only did good. Perfect weather throughout the vintage, which only broke after all our grapes were in. The lagares took plenty of “work”: colour good. Temperatures felt low in the lagares. Grapes rendered more than estimated. Bomfim musts approximately 96/97 pipes. Zimbro about 35 and Sra da Ribeira (excluding outside grapes) about 70. There seems no reason not to be satisfied with this vintage from every angle.
