Colheita Ports are patiently matured for a minimum of 8 years (but will be ageing in our cellars for many decades more) in seasoned oak casks, acquiring a softened mellow texture with an intense complex nose which complements the appealing raisiny fruit. VZ Colheita Old Tawny Ports are still ageing in their casks and are only bottled on demand. Bright and clear, they are ready to drink once bottled.
