Monólogo Arinto P24 is a monovarietal wine produced with grapes from the plot P24 at Quinta de Santa Teresa, relying on organic and sustainable farming practices.
The winter of 2017 was relatively dry. However, this trend inverted completely during the 2018 Spring, which registered far greater levels of precipitation than the average levels of rainfall for this time. These rains forced us to apply treatments in the vineyards for mildew and oidium.
Summer, on the other hand, was hot and dry, the average temperatures in August and September being much higher than the annual averages for these months. Despite the intense heat, the generality of the vines went thru the season without any issues, only a few parcels registering some burns in the first week of August.
The harvest of this parcel started early, on 27 of September, in consequence of the hot summer.
