Viticultural and Weather Conditions

Normal rainfall during the winter was followed by a cold wet spring, and summer not really starting until June. The first three weeks of September were fine, hot and dry, but on 28th September the temperature dropped sharply and it rained heavily. Within 24 hours the sun returned, but temperatures never recovered to pre-rain levels. Heavy rain on 3/5th October, picking temporarily suspended, then good weather through to 18 October.

Vintage started on 17 September at Quinta dos Malvedos in the Cima Corgo, in fine weather with cool nights. Sugar graduations from 12.5° to 14°.

Elsewhere, Bomfim and Rio Torto quintas started between 24 and 27 September

Winemaker's Overview

The made wine looks very nice and has a very nice rich purple colour.

James R Symington
29 September 1984

Here at Bomfim ... the greater majority should prove to be well above average in quality.
