In autumn / winter 2006/2007 rained enough to replenish ground water in the Douro, and thus had a water availability as have not been seen for years. In terms of temperature in winter was not very accurate and much warmer spring than usual. All of this available water and warm weather caused the growth cycle of the vine starts a little earlier than usual.
The summer was mild and always with some rain which caused a delay in the maturation and painter. Thus, we witness the maturation unusual conditions in the Douro with enough water in the soil and mild temperatures. This delay in maturation and the possibility of rain in September caused us some anxiety, but fortunately this did not happen and we had only one day of rain during the whole harvest. We achieved an exceptional vintage, with maturation but not very deep stress, preserving color, flavor and fresh flavors and acidity.
Reserva 2007 STRONG> is thus a very intense and wine Fine. Extremely fragrant and concentrated, but with great freshness that makes it look very delicate and elegant. Firm tannins and well-wrapped presents for a sweet, seductive fruit, makes this wine is already showing very well despite having huge potential for development.
