Vintage Description Despite one of the wettest viticultural years in recent times, the 2003 Vintage will always bear the mark of an extremely hot period during the month of August when we experienced temperatures of more than 40°C. The old vines are well adapted to extreme temperatures and with the help of two days of rain at the end of August the grapes continued to ripen throughout September and reach full maturity by the beginning of October. The main part of the harvest was brought in relatively late, made up of ripe, healthy grapes which once in the lagares showed a high sugar level with a good acidity level, ideal for Port wine.
