    The Year 2015

     

    2015 was mainly characterized by its irregular climatic conditions, starting with a cold, dry winter, followed by a hot and unusually dry spring and summer. The main highlights of this campaign were the low precipitation levels during most of the vegetative cycle as well as the high temperatures registered between June & July. These conditions caused an advance in the vegetative cycle of about two weeks according to average results for the region. On a phytosanitary approach, diseases and plagues had very little impact on the quality and quantity of grapes this year. In consideration to the previous 10 years, 2015 showed the best results in terms of a phytosanitary evaluation for the overall harvest. 2015 was yet another great year for the Douro, revealing complex, structured and powerful Reds.
