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, the bouquet becoming more complex. The color changes towards gold. The oldest wines even get a green nuance.
To taste: In the younger Colheita’s: intense aroma and taste: fruit jelly, quince jam, spices. With age, the wine develops other flavors: 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 ….
