WIESE & KROHN VINTAGE 2009 PORT
Cold, rainy winter. Budburst and flowering occurred in the usual periods under normal conditions, but seemed to predict a relatively small yield. Temperature in June and July was below average, and there was even some rain. August was very hot, causing the grapes to reach a high level of maturity.
Harvest began in the first days of September under a high temperature. The grapes were in a good state, very sweet but lacked a bit of acidity. The yield was lower than expected. The quality was in general rather good.
