Product Description

Dark brick colour. Rich dense berry fruit nose with minty herbal notes. Very typical Terra Feita. Lots of depth and background. Treacle texture. Firm palate with lean tannins. Discreet fruity flavour: plum black fruit cassis. Long embracing finish. Following a wet 1998 vintage we had a very cold and dry winter with very little rainfall. As a consequence budburst started two weeks later than usual in mid March.April and May were very wet which was just as well as the water reserves in the soil were very low. Flowering occurred in mid May under wet conditions however with the initial large number of inflorescences the overall yield was not significantly compromised. June and July were extremely hot with temperatures rising above 40ºC on several occasions. The extreme heat of the summer was interrupted at around the eclipse (11th August) with three days heavy rain and the same occurred in the first three days of September. Fortunately the end of September was dry and warm and remarkably for the amount of rain that fell good Ports were made. - Vintage may differ from the image shown.
