HARVEST YEAR

Dry winter with temperatures above average for February and March, resulting in water stress at the moment of budburst. Sharp fall in temperature accompanied by heavy rains in April and May sometimes brought about physiological imbalance in the vines. Very vigorous growth in May and June led to coulure (shatter), especially mid-slope and at high altitude. Tinta Roriz was the worst affected grape variety. The same weather conditions favoured the development of mildew, which reduced the crop even further. The summer was warm, with a few thunderstorms in August and water mostly in adequate supply. Picking started on September 13th, simultaneously in the Douro superior and the Cima Corgo. It proceeded normally with a bit of rain that became more frequent after the equinox, but without causing serious damage to the grapes.
