Colheitas Tawny

Colheita 2001

Deep brick colour with reddish hints. In the nose stands out the aroma of dried fruits and spices well integrated with soft notes of red fruit, such as cherry and fresh raspberries. In the taste shows a huge freshness and a great variety of flavours. The tannins are fine, firms and balanced. A superb wine with an interminable end.

Vinification

Hand-harvest at their best moment, the grapes are destemmed, crushed and vinified in a careful maceration with extraction of colour, tannins and aromas of the pellicles, complemented by permanent pumping-over during fermentation. This process takes place in vats at a controlled temperature between 28-30ºC, until reaching the desired Baumé. At this phase grape brandy is added (benefit), originating a fortified wine. A wine of an exceptional quality, from a single harvest. Matures in wood for variable periods of time, never less than 7 years, being bottled afterwards by market requests.

Wine Colheita 2001

Traditional Douro grape varieties.

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).
