1971 Vintage

Not declared.

Viticultural and Weather Conditions

The hot weather of early July was of short duration, and the following six weeks were cool and often cloudy, although little rain fell.

Winemaker's Overview

At Bomfim the bunches are still half-green, the normal development for late July. In the Altos the grapes are still completely green. Caseiros (quinta managers) in the Rio Torto, and our own Manuel, say they could not remember development so far behind hand for late August.

Michael D Symington
[late August 1971]
