Singular is a Vinho Verde produced mainly with grapes from Old Vines, in conversion to organic farming and selected exclusively by the winemaker.
The winter of 2015 and the first quarter of 2016 had occasional, but intense, rain with above-average minimum temperatures. Spring was marked by strong and intense rain in April, which extended until the 2nd fortnight of May, marking the beginning of the vegetative cycle with maximum temperatures below the average of the previous year and causing strong mildew attacks in the region. From a wine-growing point of view, it was a particularly dificult year which required special attention in the ght against this disease.
Summer was characterized by an absence of precipitation, and above-average maximum temperatures, with the exception of three days of heavy rainfall in September.
The harvest at Quinta de Santa Teresa started in September, divided by varietals, with the bunches achieving adequate maturation and exceptional concentration of aromas and avours.
