Douro Valley Port
The Colheita type is a aged Tawny from a specific year, and thus reflects a specific harvest, in contrast to e.g. 10 and 20 years of port, which, so to speak, indicates the average age of port wine. Colheita is thus the Tawny’s counterpart to the Ruby’s Vintage Port. The grapes for Otima Colheita come from Warre’s field plots on Quinta da Cavadinha in Pinhão, which is described as one of the best growing areas in the Douro Valley, as well as Quinta do Retiro in the Rio Torto Valley. The port wine is made from Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barroca and Tinta Roriz, barrel aged individually before bottling and bottling.
Otima Colheita 2006 has a deep amber color with brownish shades. The scent brings to mind dates, orange peel and roasted oriental spices. In taste, it is powerful and creamy, with reminders of figs, raisins and vanilla. The aftertaste is long, upright and refreshing. It can be enjoyed alone, for strong cheeses or for sweet desserts with chocolate. The port wine should be served lightly chilled, and after opening it will be able to last for up to a month.
The grapes are stored individually in oak barrels before
bottling and bottling.
