Quinta de Terra Feita2001

The 2001 viticultural season was marked by one of the wettest winters on record, with widespread flooding and damage in the Douro region. From April forward, the weather became more settled.

The summer saw moderately hot temperatures, with a continuous light wind keeping the vines aerated and free of disease. However, the long growing season and almost total lack of rain from June to the end of August caused some stress to the vines.

The weather conditions during the first half of the vintage were ideal and contributed favourably to fermentations. Two days of rain affected the end of the vintage, but fortunately it was restricted to those two days, allowing most of the picking to occur under dry conditions.

A superb fruit driven vintage Port, true to the tradition of this ancient Pinhão Valley estate.

 

TASTING NOTES

Opaque purple red with magenta highlights. This has the intense berry fruit nose typical of Terra Feita, full of blackberry, cassis and black cherry aromas with hints of plum and liquorice. Round and full on the palate with ripe, mouth-filling tannins and sumptuous jammy fruit flavours on the finish. A superb fruit driven vintage port, true to the tradition of this ancient Pinhão Valley estate.
