The 2017 harvest was the earliest ever at Quinta do Crasto. An unusually warm and dry winter meant that the vines’ growth cycle began earlier than normal. This led to a challenging year for the viticulture and winemaking teams. They had to perfectly time the harvest to ensure maximum quality. All that hard work really paid off and 2017 will go down in history as a year of exceptional wines.
Opaque in colour, the nose shows excellent concentration and aroma expression, with ripe wild fruit, delicate notes of spice and hints of cacao. Powerful beginning on the palate, evolving into a wine with a solid structure, made of massive tannins of great quality and freshness. This is a unique wine
that enhances the power of Quinta do Crasto’s terroir and finishes in a very engaging way, with an almost endless persistence.
