Colheitas Tawny

Colheita 2009

Golden-brown colour, with reddish hues. It shows a delicate nose, with aromas of syrup fruit combined with notes of dried fruit and hints of white pepper. On the palate, it reveals the fineness of a Burmester Colheita, beginning smooth and delicate, with syrup fruit aromas and notes of dried fruit. A long and harmonious finish.

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.

Wine Colheita 2009

Traditional Douro grape varieties.

The rows of vines are traditionally planted across the slope in horizontal terraces. More recently vines have been planted up the slope (called “vinha ao alto”, meaning vertically planted).

Schistous-sandstone (greywacke), interspersed with granite in some places.

Up to 600 meters.
