Description

A Tawny Port from a single harvest and exceptional quality, aged for a minimum of 7 years in cask, representing less than 1% of the total production of Port every year. Like a Vintage Port, a Colheita 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.

Tasting Notes

Beautiful orange & brick colour with good depth. The aroma and palate show the maturity of the wine, due to the long ageing in small old oak casks. Notes of candied  & dried fruits, apricot, peach as well as smoke. The mouth is very much alive, marked by a vibrant acidity and great volume. It's enveloping, with a long and very pleasant finish.
