See details of the wines declared or bottled from the year 1954:

1954 Vintage

Not declared, though a few excellent single quinta wines bottled. By the time 1954 might have been declared the superb quality of the 1955 was apparent, so most opted for 1955 declaration.

Viticultural and Weather Conditions

Vintage started on the 27th. No rain just before vintage, but the grapes looked healthy and free of any disease during the year.

Winemaker's Overview

The grapes at Bomfim have both sweetness and grip.

John D Symington
26 September 1954

There was practically no escolha (selection) … The graduações (sugar readings) were good and the mostos (musts) had very excellent colour and had plenty of grip. They were also full of flavour and were most pleasing to the nose and palate. [1954s] should turn out excellent wines.
