Chão do Prado Late Harvest 2009

Chão do Prado Late Harvest

In 2001, Chão do Prado’s farm produced the first Bucelas Late Harvest. The fruit is left to mature for longer and the harvest can take place as late as in the 4rd week of October. This allows the grapes to be covered with noble rot. Noble rot is a fungal condition that affects grapes only in a few exclusive regions around the world, due to their climatic uniqueness where wet conditions are followed by dry, like Tokaj and Sauternes. This results in highly prized dessert wines. The wine was made at the farm winery, where the grapes arrived about 15 minutes after collection, packed in boxes. The winemaking was done by the system of open spout using a vertical hydraulic press of the early ’40s. After decanting, the must fermented in oak barrels where it remained about a year with batonnage. The result is a sensational wine with golden colour, intense nose botrytis, orange peel, honey, toast and minerals perceptions, and a remarkable structure, good acidity, greasiness and a prolonged and enjoyable length on the palate.
