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.
On the palate: intense aroma and flavor: nuts, cinnamon, coffee, but always fresh and elegant. Excellent length on finish with nuts and raisins.
Storage: store upright in a cool, dark place. Does not develop significantly in the bottle. Can be stored for over ten years without losing its freshness.
Serve: Serve slightly chilled, between 12 and 13ºC, in a suitable glass. Suitable for all types of desserts, especially those prepared with eggs and nuts, almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts and of course with a cheese board.

Lots of citrus, intense with dried orange aromas, lingering acidity and spicy character – a nice texture. Caramel colour, slight sweetness, pleasant.
Aromas of nuts and candied fruit. In the mouth facets of raisins, honey and currants. The intense ripe taste of dried fruits together with the elegant sweetness make a harmonious whole.
