The Colheita Port wines are superior quality wines from a single vintage. The vintage and year of bottling are always mentioned on the label. As they age in the barrel, the young, fruity and fresh aromas undergo changes through oxidation and give way to a bouquet of dried fruit, wood and spices. As they age, they also improve in suppleness and balance, and their bouquet becomes increasingly complex. The color changes towards gold. The oldest wines even get a green nuance.
Taste: Tawny in colour, with delicious aromas of brown sugar and roasted nuts. Excellent length on finish with nuts and raisins. Intense aroma and taste: fruit jelly, quince jam, spices, in the younger wines. With age, the wine develops other flavors: nuts, cinnamon, coffee, but always fresh and elegant.
Storage: Store upright in a cool dark place. The Colheita does not develop significantly further in the bottle and can be stored for over ten years without losing its freshness.
Presentation: In warm weather, serve slightly chilled, between 12 and 13°C, in an appropriate glass. Goes well with all kinds of desserts, especially prepared with eggs and nuts almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts …) and cheese board.
A Port wine with aromas of fruit jam, marmalade and spice is how we can describe this Dalva 1990 vintage. Colheitas retain their bright flavors over time and this DALVA 1990 is no exception. Flavors and aromas of dried fruit, cinnamon and coffee are an essential part of this wine as years go by.
