In 2017 the spring and summer were very dry in the Alentejo, with no rainfall and a low amount of dampness in the soil. The year recorded very high temperatures for long periods of time. These climatic conditions led to short plant cycles, weak vegetative vigour and early maturing. The grape harvest began on 18 August. The year favoured the higher and cooler altitude regions, where the balance between the production and the vegetative output led to the production of balanced white wines with that were buoyantly aromatic.
