Description

A unique Single Cask White Colheita Port chosen with master blender Alvaro Van Zeller at Barao de Vilar cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia. A White Colheita Port is a wine from a single harvest and exceptional quality, aged for a minimum of 7 years in cask. Like a Vintage Port, a White Colheita Port is only released when the best conditions are gathered. Whilst it ages, its young fruity and fresh aromas develop through oxidation to create an increased smoothness harmony and complexity. White Colheitas are extremely special and rare.

Tasting Notes

Our team chose this cask for its outstanding fresh acidity, great balance and finish. Notes of plums, light spices, marmalade, dried fruit and liquorice. The texture is very silky and rich. The acidity is there to balance the sugar. A smooth and elegant White Port.
