Colheita Tawny

Colheita 2008

Brick-red colour. Intense and fruity on the nose, with aromas of syrup fruit well matched with notes of spice and dried fruit. In the mouth it is silky and elegant, a perfect example of a Burmester Colheita. Long finish with a surprisingly refreshing acidity.

Vinification

Hand-picked at the optimum time, the grapes are then destemmed, crushed and converted into wine through a process of careful maceration to extract their colour, tannins and aromas, enhanced by constant churning during fermentation. This takes place in vats (lagares) at a controlled temperature (between 28-30°C) until the right degree of sweetness (baumé) is achieved. At this point, grape brandy is added to create the final fortified wine. A wine of high quality, made from one single harvest. A Colheita wine matures in oak barrels for periods of time that can vary, but never less than 7 years. It is then bottled and sold according to the demands of the market.

Colheita 2008

The vineyard is disposed along the slopes on horizontal levels and, more recently, they are planted along the lines of greatest slopes, so called “Vinha ao Alto” (vertically planted vines).
