Quinta de Terra Feita1988

The 1988 vintage was preceded by a dry winter and an unusually wet spring. The heavy rainfall affected the berry-set in many areas of the Douro, producing a relatively limited yield. 

However, the critical ripening months of July and August were warm and dry and the crop, although small, was in extremely good condition when picking started in mid-September. 

Notes written at Terra Feita at the time of harvest report that the grapes were well ripened and rich in sugar, producing wine of excellent concentration and depth of colour.

 

TASTING NOTES

Good deep core, ruby red rim. Attractive mature fruit, prune, date, plum jam, floral dimension. Complex. Rich spicy palate with lingering ripe cherry on the finish.

ACCOLADES

A real thoroughbred with massive intensity: sweet and raisiny with a firm dash of acidity.
