Tawny Port Colheita 2000 - Quevedo (half bottle)

The balance of acidity, sugar and concentrated flavors lifts the mid-palate through a remarkably fresh, polished and long aromatic finish.

Color: Medium brown with hints of pomegranate color.
Taste: on the nose cherry and dry raspberry combined with subtle notes of nuts, such as almonds. On the palate it is fresh and rich with a long finish reminiscent of chocolate. This is a Colheita that will age well in the bottle.

Shelf life of the bottle after opening: up to 4 months (in the refrigerator)
Try it with: chocolate, nuts or cheese

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 development.
