Colheita, Niepoort, 75cl
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 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 a 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.
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.
