Quinta de Terra Feita1995

The Winter of 1994/5 was characterised by fairly heavy rainfall, but the temperatures were higher than normal and no cold weather was experienced. February was a dry month and the early Spring was unseasonably hot. 

Cold weather came at the end of April and there was severe frost damage in the higher regions of the Douro. Conditions however for flowering in May were near perfect.

The two outstanding features of the 1995 vintage were the exceptionally high sugar readings and the super abundant crop. Colour extraction was excellent and the ‘lagares’ took plenty of work.

 

TASTING NOTES

A truly spectacular Terra Feita. Wonderful Terra Feita fruit and richness on the nose. Pungent overwhelming intensity of plump, fat, voluptuous fruit. Wonderful exuberant fruit on the mouth. Grips beautifully. Perfect volume. Lovely long persistant finish.

ACCOLADES

Best Terra Feita ever.
