Taylors Quinta de Vargellas 2001



Quite a deep ruby colour, with an ever so slight mature appearance. It has a rich, slightly sweet entry, middle-full weight body and an attractive fruit-laden, lingering length, underpinned by the firm dry tannins.

The 2001 viticultural season was marked by one of the wettest winters on record, with widespread flooding and damage in the Douro region. From April forward, the weather became more settled.

The summer saw moderately hot temperatures, with a continuous light wind keeping the vines aerated and free of disease.

The harvest started on the 17th September at Quinta de Vargellas. The weather conditions during the first half of the vintage were ideal with hot days and cold nights contributing favourably to fermentations. 

The quality of the 2001 vintage was evident from the beginning of the harvest.
