Winemaking Process:

Wine fermented after partial destemming at controlled temperature, 24/28C., when the must reaches the desired sweetness, fermentation is then interrupted by adding brandy (77%), ageing in oak wood barrels for a minimum period of seven years, in our warehouses in Vila Nova de Gaia, till bottling.

Tasting Notes:

Pale tawny wine with good and elegant tertiary aromas, a subtle with a touch of vanilla and cinnamon enhancing a notable aromatic complexity.

At taste is delicate, consistent with jam nuances and a long final.

The 1982 harvest is excellent as aperitif once it matches perfectly with caviar canapés, dates stuffed with cheese cream, rolled Lamego ham with papaya seasoned with drops of lemon juice, as a digestive also matches perfectly with a Serra cheese ice cream, a cheese alftendel or even a good and assorted cheese board.

What is a "Porto Colheita"?

It's a high quality Port of a strict vintage. Matures in wooden barrels for at least seven years, after that period it can then be bottled.

When of the maturation in cask, the young, fruity and fresh aromas develop by an oxidation process; turn to a bouquet giving place to aromas of dry fruits, and also to toasting, wooden and spicy aromas. When of the ageing, it gains more softness, harmony and complexity in the bouquet.

The colour changes to tawny, getting some green hues in older wines.
