Vintage 2018

After an extended drought, rain finally came to the Douro in spring 2018 in such quantities that there was some damaging erosion. Following that, summer was hot, and yields were consequently low, but the classic varieties thrived in the heat, producing deep, intense, fragrant wines.

The 2018 Single Quinta Vintage Ports are the result of a rollercoaster growing season – with a prolonged winter drought, a deluge in spring, and heatwaves through the final ripening period. Despite the challenges, the 2018 wines are characterised by a well-defined acidity and marked freshness, reflecting the characteristics of specific parcels of vineyard within each estate. The star of the year was the late-maturing Touriga Franca, which excelled in the warm harvest, allowing each estate’s signature aromas to flourish.

Written Notes

The 2018 vintage of the Redoma Branco offers a more delicate and slightly less expressive character than previous editions of this wine. One can distinguish refreshing aromas of lime, ginger and some exotic fruits. Very subtle hints of oak lend the Redoma balance and complexity, with great freshness on the palate as well as beautiful structure supported by firm acidity. A very long, mineral and lightly saline finish provides an elegant conclusion to the wine. While it is very delicate and harmonious in its youth, this wine will undoubtedly develop very well in bottle.

2018 was a relatively cool year up until August, with the coolest July recorded in the 21st century. The vines seemed to be developing relatively late, with a delay of about 3 weeks compared to 2017. The first days of August brought a sudden spike in temperatures: the 4th of August was the hottest year to date this century. As a result, the berries ripened slowly during the month of September. The water stress caused the vines to produce musts with low alcohols and good phenolic ripeness, as well as good complexity and minerality. The white wine grapes were picked between 5 September and 2 October.

The grapes stem from old vines growing on the right bank of the Douro River, at an altitude of 400 to 600 metres above sea level. These vines predominantly grow in mica-schist soils, which, in combination with the complexity of the various grape varieties typical of the Douro region, create delicate wines full of freshness and minerality.

The decision not to harvest too late in enabled us in 2018 to obtain musts with a good balance between the natural acidity and sugar of the fruit. After being meticulously sorted on our sorting table, the fruit was gently pressed and left to settle for about 24 hours. Alcoholic fermentation took place spontaneously, in 228L and 500L French oak barrels, where the wine also aged for 6 months.

Cooked pears and sliced lemon rind with green apple undertones. Medium to full body, tangy acidity and creamy texture with a crunchy, fruity aftertaste. A blend of rabigato, codega, viosinho, donzelinho, dorinto and others. Drink now.
