The best cuvees are chosen for Colheita ports that have been matured for at least 7 years in oak casks. During this period the wine is racked several times. Bottling is made as required but the label must state the age of the wine, the bottling year and that the wine has been matured in wood.
Amber colour with a bouquet reminiscent of dried fruits. Soft and velvety on the palate with a lingering finish.
Serve: At 17c to 18c as an aperitif, with desserts, with cheese, with chocolates and also with a good cigar.
