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.
The grapes are harvested in 20 kg boxes, transported to the winery and subjected to sorting. With winemaking in traditional wine press by foot. Wine masses are transferred by gravity to cement vats.
Aged for 24 months in clay amphorae and selection of the 10 best amphorae.
