Year Notes about 2007 Wine Year and Harvest: The 2007 year had a rainy winter that replenish underground water reserves, after four hot and dry years.
Wet conditions continued in the spring and early summer with low temperatures.
In the first two weeks of September there were constant daily temperatures between 35 °C and 38 °C.
These hot, dry conditions made the vineyards ripe perfectly, accelerating the sugar and phenolic compounds production while maintaining the excellent natural acidity resulting from a relatively cool summer. As a result, the harvest produced perfectly balanced musts which led to wines with style and elegant, full of vitality and with a concentrated fruity character and superb freshness.
Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage 2003 is a Port wine of superb quality and elegance, with delicate aromas of violets and cassis. It is a wine that, although young, features a surprising harmony of flavours. A wine still produced using traditional methods, in which the grapes are stepped using the feet, worthy of a classic.
