Colheita Port

A Colheita is an aged Tawny Port made with grapes from a single vintage. By law, Colheitas should be matured in wooden casks for at least seven years, although in practice they tend to be aged for up to 50 years. They are bottled only when the producer decides the Port is ready to drink, and should be enjoyed in the following year or so. The label should carry both the vintage and the bottling date.
