Although initially rather overshadowed by 2000, some fabulous parcels of wine, which were put aside following the harvest, have developed, with time, into very elegant and appealing wines from which the Colheita 2001 was made. The grapes were trodden in lagares and later the Port was matured in small old oak casks at our lodge in Gaia until 2010. The extended ageing in small old oak casks imparts a wonderful brick red/brown appearance in the wine with great concentration and a unique flavour.
- TASTING NOTES
Wonderful brick red/brown colour. Delightful vinous aroma, well integrated with dried fruits
aromas. A unique flavour reminiscent of dried prunes and apricots on the palate, leading to an elegant spirity finish.
