Excellent communication from start to finish. The website is easy to navigate with very good recommendations and there is a wine to suit every taste and budget. If there is a wine out of stock you will be told and offered a replacement so you order will not be held up. The tracking system is a fantastic tool to keep an eye on where you reach order is. I have placed many orders with Portugal Vineyards and I look forward to enjoying many more. Keep up the great work.

Winemaking:
Colheita ports are vintage tawnies, kept in large wooden casks called tonels” in our own lodge for at least 7 years before bottling. The idea of a colheita is to produce a wood aged port from one single year (often a ‘vintage’ port quality year). This port was foot trodden and matured in these ‘toneis’, some of which are over 100 years old. Unlike most port shippers, all products are stored and bottled in the Douro (at La Rosa and not Porto), allowing full traceability and ensuring quality from grape to bottle.

Grape Varieties:
Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz

Tasting Notes:
The Colheita is similar in style to other La Rosa ports – well defined, with a good structure, mature tannins and soft wood undertones. La Rosa ports are slightly drier than most and the brandy is well integrated. This Colheita is rather unusual – at one level there is plenty of young, mature fruit (black plums) and at the other, there are a more tertiary, complex flavours associated with dry fruits and spice. On tasting, at the beginning, the wine is vigorous and full of flavour getting more complex on the palate and ending with a mixture of fresh fruit, nuts, dried apricot and spice. The finish is very elegant and long. This Colheita successfully marries two worlds – the energy and opulence of fruit from Ruby ports and the elegance and complexity of Tawnies.
