1962 Vintage

Not declared, some nice single quinta wines made.

Viticultural and Weather Conditions

Long drought from April right through the start of vintage, with intense heat only in August and September, so vines were a bit backward.

Vintage started at Bomfim and Zimbro 10th September, and wines were made during intense heat. The much wanted rain only came later in the vintage, after these quintas were done.

Winemaker's Overview

It is rare however to see grapes in all districts looking so perfect as this year, completely lacking in any form of disease and bunches requiring no escolha (selection) at all. … some musts were very pleasant even if on the green side and some had very good colour. When grapes are as exceptionally perfect as they were this year one often gets surprises and wines turn out much better than expected.

Ronald A Symington
October 1962
