in the vineyard : The seven cultivars from which the port is made came from trellised, mixed vineyards, grown in Malmesbury shale at between 270m and 340m above sea level. Planted from 1954, the vines received no irrigation.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested fully ripened at 26° Balling in mid-March.

in the cellar : The port is made from a blend of equal parts of Tinta Barocca (20%), Souzao (20%) and Pontac (20%), while the balance was made up of equal parts of Toriga Naçional, Tinta Röriz and Malvasia Rey. It was blended before ageing in wood for just over four years (49 months) in old oak.
