In 2014, a year of drought, Aliança decided to make another vintage of T Quinta da Terrugem due to the excellent condition of the grapes. Trincadeira and Aragonez were harvested in the second week of September, the Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested in the last week of September. The Aragonez and Trincadeira developed nicely as these are two varieties that thrive in periods of drought. All grapes varieties were fermented separately in stainless steel temperature controlled tanks. After fermentation, the wine spent 18 months in new French oak (225 liter) barrels. After a careful selection of the very best vats, the final blend is made.
