Excellent value and great choice in all price ranges. I have placed several orders now, mainly at the lower end of the price range for everyday drinking and I have been amazed at the quality.

The service is excellent. This order was slightly damaged in transit and one bottle was broken in what must have been a pretty unusual accident. Portugalvineyards were extremely good in the way they handled it. Once I had forward photos of the damaged box they refunded the lost bottle. The prices are good. The speed of delivery good and as for the wine I chose...the ones I have tasted so far have been superb.

Winemaking:
Colheita is a port from a single harvest, aged in oak casks for, at least, seven years and bottled by demand. The Maynard's Colheitas has been carefully selected and matured in seasoned oak casks to produce a rich mellowness with the finest balance and elegance of old tawnies.

Store and Serve Advices:
The wine should be stored in a fresh, dry and dark place, without temperature variations, and the bottle must remain up-right. As a natural product, the Port Wine is subject to create deposit when ageing. To guarantee the plenitude of its freshness and quality, the wine shall be consumed preferentially with the shortest time in bottle. Serve at a temperature between 12 and 14ºC.

Food Pairing:
Slightly refreshed, expresses all the finesse and sophistication when combined with caramel desserts, dried fruits and spices, like caramel fondant with apple and ginger jelly, tatin tart, burnt cream and Cheeses of minimum intensity. Despite the age, the freshness remains. Extraordinary marriage with a refreshing tangerine parfait. The multiplicity of possible harmonies is amazing, having the consumer the pleasure to go in search of new flavours.
