The wine year 2003 began with a very cold and dry winter. The sprouting occurred in the third week of March, but spring remained fresh and well in rainfall in April and May which led to a delay in the growth of the vines, verifying a low vegetative vigor and the delay in flowering and fruit set. In June and July the time heated, promoted a good vegetative growth. However, berries and bunches presented always smaller than normal. The Painter also occurred a little later.
The maturation occurred normally and the harvest began on 20 September, with very good quality fruit.
The grapes were taken to the vinification center in small boxes of 25 kg where they were stripped and crushed and was then forwarded to granite tanks where were trodden by feet.
The ready wine remained in old barrels of National oak for about a year, until in January 2014 the wine has been approved as being with excellent quality and designated as Vintage. The bottling took place in early June 2014.
