Colheita Port is basically a single vintage-dated Tawny Port. The word means "harvest" and is made from the grapes of a single year’s harvest.
Colheita ports are aged in small casks for many years and are bottled in their seventh or eighth year in cask although most are aged much longer, some even to a hundred years.

Bright tawny colour, very complex on the nose, with elegant notes of nuts and honey, and fresh spice and orange peel aromas.
Elegant beginning that leads way to a full-bodied palate, with a complex texture of fine tannins in perfect harmony with a vibrant aromatic profile. An engaging wine, with an elegant, long lingering finish.
