The rainfall that was present in 2014 was well distributed throughout the year with reasonable temperatures in winter and a fresh month of August. This enabled the vines to maintain a healthy appearance, with lots of leaves throughout the cycle, which protected the grapes from the peaks of heat during the summer. Thereby safeguarding the health of the bunches. At the end of August, the harvest was looking wonderful, with beautiful healthy grapes and an excellent sugar and acidity balance, ideal for making great Port.

Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Taste Deep dark ruby-purple with a spicy and wild nose, with soft velvety black fruits, good freshness and balance. Great elegance and great power. Full-bodied and fleshy with firm backbone of tannins and a long finish. Very seductive and perfectly delicious now, but will of course repay decades of bottle ageing and reveal its full potential over time.
