Colheitas are dated tawnies aged in small casks. The minimum age requirement is 7 years, but the tradition at Niepoort is to age several more years in the before bottling. The wine takes on a Tawny hue. Wood and nutty tones are evident on the palate due to the wine’s slow ageing in old casks. After the meal Colheita combines well with Crème caramel, and especially with deserts that contain dried fruits or nuts. As a starter the combination with foie gras is impressive. Note that Colheita Port does not need decanting. Colheita Ports are Tawny Ports from a single harvest 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: Brick red colour with some orange/brown hues and solid depth of colour. Delightful vinous aroma, well integrated with aroma of dried fruits. On the palate, shows great freshness along with subdued dried apricots and figs, leading to a lengthy spirity finish. Sweet suggestions: Dry fruits, dry nuts, almonds, raisins, peaches, apricots, etc. Desserts based on eggs, pies with dry fruits, coffee, vanilla. Slightly chilled it can also be used as aperitif.
