Tawny Port Colheita 2002 - Quevedo

2002 was a difficult year. Definitely the biggest challenge of the decade. As no grapes were used to create Vintage Port, our best selection was used to create this Colheita.

With 20 years of aging in our cellar, this is probably the most elegant and complex Colheita made to date.

Colour: light brown with a touch of amber
Very complex and intense notes of spices, caramel and dried fruit.
Powerful entry with a rich abundance of dried fruit, mid-palate with candied fruit. Spices on the long finish round off this multi-layered, complex and elegant port wine.

Shelf life of the bottle after opening: up to 4 months (in the fridge)

Try it with: chocolate, nuts or cheese, foie gras, crème brulée

Colheita is a single harvest Tawny Port. This means that Colheita is aged in barrels for at least seven years to develop a more brownish color and be affected by the slow oxidation that occurs when port comes into contact with oak. Because Quevedo Colheitas are grown in the upper part of the Douro Valley, where yields are low and tannins are more persistent, they show a fruity character when young and are quite full-bodied. Over time, the tannins soften and the fruit gives way to spice and nutty flavors. At this point they become complex and rich. We can bottle the Colheita every year as long as it is seven or more years old. A Colheita from a given year can be very different depending on the year it was bottled. The longer it ages in the barrel, the less fruity aromas and tannins it has, because in the bottle the lack of oxygen slows down its evolution.
