We are delighted to offer a UK exclusive on Burmester Colheita Ports.
Bright brown colour, with greenish nuances. Presents a bouquet with intense aromas of dried fruits, delicate spices notes and a sweet touch of honey. In the taste it is full, unctuous and velvety. This wine overflows seduction and an enormous refinement. A feeling that is extended in the long and complex finish.
This 40-year-old wine owes its name, Tordiz, to the confluence of the Torto and Mendiz rivers. It is obtained from wines that have been carefully aged in small oak casks and later blended in a small upstanding oak vat dating from 1864. The final mix, in small oak casks, is a vivacious example of the art of “blending”, which Casa Burmester has perfected over the years.
The 40 Year Old Tawny Port is a classic wine of exceptional quality and elegance. The Port is made from a single harvest (a "Vintage Tawny") and aged in small 550-litre oak barrels in their Vila Nova de Gaia Cellars. It is bottled at least seven years after the harvest.
New release - Please note that this is a 40 years old port. 40 is the average age of the contents so the vintage does not appear on the bottle. It is included under the vintage as it is a perfect gift to celebrate a 40th anniversary.
