1968 Vintage

No declarations, a few single-quinta wines bottled.

Viticultural and Weather Conditions

Dry, hot summer, no rain whatsoever in June and July, and only a little in August and September.

Winemaker's Overview

On the whole, 1968 should have produced good, stout wines, with reasonable to good colour and fine graduations. We can look forward to our December Tastings of the young wines with confidence. The ‘middle quality’ districts have probably produced better than average wines.
