The year started with a relatively rainy winter and spring. This resulted in a year of hard work in the vineyard and low production.  The summer was cool compared to the average and therefore the ripening of the grapes was slow and balanced. We began the harvest on 8 September, a week earlier than usual.

Grape Varieties

Alvarinho, Loureiro, Avesso

Vinification / Maturation
