Notes on Viticultural Year and Harvest
The winter of 1993/1994 was extremely wet throughout the region. As a result, most of the yields were very vineyards low. In some areas of the Douro, production levels were to below 75% from the average. Despite the poor start, the growing season was satisfactory, with warm and dry weather, interrupted only by a few and short periods of rain. Unlike what happened in the three years earlier, there were no periods of intense heat during the summer –
The temperature never exceeded 38 ° C – and this, in conjunction with appropriate rain resulted in uniformly ripe harvest, to produce rich grape sugar, anthocyanins and aroma.
