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.
Taste: Tawny in colour, with delicious aromas of brown sugar and roasted nuts. Excellent length on finish with nuts and raisins.
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.
Unmistakable freshness, mineral energy and drive on the palate, combined with a firm core of sweet black cherry and warm spice, dark chocolate and ripe tannins; juicy and lively, full finish, very good length. On the second it’s a bit milder, the nose has cedar and spice, in the mouth it feels fuller and more complete, full and sweet, with a nice floral lift, ripe red berries and milk chocolate; the alcoholic heat on the finish is not a dissonant. Very good (92).
Very developed on the palate with dried fruit, raisins, figs cherries in liquid and violet candy. Nice balance. Not too sweet, quite complex, with a broader palette than I usually experience with port. Soft and silky. The aromas are just amazing with so many different impressions.
