Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage 2012, Douro, Portugal
2012 was a dry year in the Douro, with widespread drought causing some alarm at times. With these challenging conditions Vesuvio’s predominantly northerly aspect, its higher altitudes and its variety of microclimates were a distinct advantage, creating cooler temperatures, which aided the vines in ripening their fruit. Quinta do Vesuvio is one of the Douro’s most magnificent properties, located on the south side of the river in the Douro Superior. Historically, average annual rainfall at Vesuvio is only 450mm. Its vineyards are spread across the seven hills that surround the house and the adega, which are situated next to the river.
