Quinta Beira Douro Dádiva 2015 Red

The wine year
The agricultural year 2015 was atypical in climatic terms. The winter was cold and dry, and both spring and summer were abnormally hot and dry. From August there was a change in this trend with average temperatures lower than normal for the season and the occurrence of some precipitation with large thermal amplitudes, which favored the preservation of acidity and the maturity balance.
The grapes were harvested in October and were in good health.
