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

This rare and magnificent 1863 Single Harvest Tawny Port represents the last great harvest in the Douro pre-phylloxera. Deep dark brown with an olive-green edge. For a wine of its age, this delivers heaps of freshness, with intense aromas of nutmeg, mocha, brown sugar, lime, toffee, butterscotch, walnut and marzipan. The palate is rich, wonderfully harmonious and multi-dimensional, with crisp acidity dancing and flirting with the divine sweetness, amidst marmalade, raisin, fig, treacle and molasses, onto a spectacular and multi-layered finish that has no apparent end.
