Colheita Ports are Tawny Ports from a single vintage, aged in wood for at least seven years before being bottled. The Colheita Port is wonderful on its own at the end of a meal or on a cold winter afternoon in front of an open fireplace. Tasting Notes Tawny / brown in colour with vivacious hints of orange; on the aroma, hints of caramelized marmalade which are all very subdued and refined. The palate is a wonderful example of freshness, definition which leads through to a lengthy spirity finish.
Vinification As with all Colheita´s the wine really made itself with long period of ageing in small old oak casks (550L) under the watchful eye of the Niepoort master blender José Nogueira in the cellars at Vila Nova de Gaia. Product . Colheita 1986 Produced . Niepoort (Vinhos) S.A. Region . Douro

Niepoort is to Vintage Port what Krug is to Champagne. They are both small houses in a world dominated by large competitors, but they are producing outstanding wines that very few can match." James Suckling (Senior editor at Wine Spectator magazine) The cellar is owned by the fifth consecutive Niepoort generation since its founding in Villa Nova de Gaia in 1842. It was always recognised by their excellent 10 years old tawnies. The grapes for the wines come from estate-owned vineyards in Pinhào, the very heart of one of the best wine growing regions in Portugal.
