Country: Portugal, Douro

Tasting Notes: Hand-picked at the optimum time, the grapes are then destemmed, crushed and converted into wine through a process of careful maceration to extract their colour, tannins and aromas, enhanced by constant churning during fermentation. This takes place in vats (lagares) at a controlled temperature (between 28-30°C) until the right degree of sweetness (baumé) is achieved. At this point, grape brandy is added to create the final fortified wine. A wine of high quality, made from one single harvest. A Colheita wine matures in oak barrels for periods of time that can vary, but never less than 7 years. It is then bottled and sold according to the demands of the market.

Pale amber in colour, it shows a rich and polished nose, with notes of hazelnut and vanilla and hints of wood. Concentrated and smooth on the palate, it is very expressive and consistent. Long and enduring finish.

Varietal: Traditional Douro grape varieties.

Pairing: Served chilled, it reveals all its finesse and sophistication, especially when drunk with desserts made with caramel, dried fruit and spices, such as caramel fondant with apple and ginger jelly, tarte tatin, crème brulée and medium-strength cheeses. Best served at a temperature between 12 and 14°C.
