Herdade dos Grous White 2022

HARVEST The year 2022 proved to be, in general, warm and dry. Low rainfall and mild temperatures felt during the period of vegetative dormancy led to an early budding in spring. In summer, high temperatures and low rainfall, contributed to uneven maturation between the varieties. These climatic conditions, however, conditioned the development of diseases, reflecting in the vineyards a good phytosanitary quality. On the 8th of August we began the harvest quietly, with Gouveio being the first variety to arrive in the cellar. At the end of the month we harvest the Arinto variety and by the beginning of September we piked the Antão Vaz variety.
