The Colheita it is a high quality Port issued from a single harvest, aged in oak casks for at least seven years. Grapes are harvested manually and transported in 30 Kg trays. Controlled fermentation with extended maceration, stopped by grape brandy addition. Fines in oak casks for a period no less than 7 years. During maturation the wine mellows by oxidization similarly to Old Port Wines, and presents characteristics that are unique of the harvest year.
