Morgadio da Calçada Colheita 1999 PORT

£45.00

1999 was marked by very low winter rainfall and a very dry hot summer. By early September the grapes were clearly suffering from the lack of rain during the year. Luckily the best vineyards were already harvested when torrential rain fell in the Douro in the end of September. The grapes were trodden in lagares and later the port was matured at the lodge in Vila Nova de Gaia. As with all Colheita´s the wine really made itself with a long period of ageing in small old oak casks (550 l)

MORGADIO DA CALÇADA COLHEITA 1999

Colheita Ports are Tawny Ports from a single harvest, aged in small old wooden casks for at least seven years before being bottled. The Colheita Port is wonderful on its own, at the end of a meal accompanying deserts and or combined with foie gras as an aperitif.

Tasting Notes

Brick red appearance with tinges of brick red and brown on the rim. The aroma shows mellow old wood with a touch of dried apricots and subdued toffee. The Colheita 1999 shows its age on the front palate but follows through with great freshness and acidity, with a well defined/persistent structure, which leads through to a lengthy finish.

Alcohol Vol% 20
