We are delighted to offer a UK exclusive on Burmester Colheita Ports.
"The 1989 Colheita Tawny Port was bottled in 2015 with 103.6 grams per liter of residual sugar. Fresh and balanced, with a feeling of liveliness, this is more about restraint and elegance than mid-palate weight, but it shows fine concentration of flavor on the finish and delivers more than adequate mid-palate concentration as well. It also has more power than anticipated on first taste. Tightening fast as it warms, its fresh feel if laced with just a touch of Whiskey that provides the perfect counterweight to the tension on the finish and fine flavors. It is a bit understated, but lovely." Mark Squires, eRobertParker.com, March 2016 - 93 Points
From a vintage year, a great year. Absolutely gorgeous nose, has the walnut and almond warmth and caramel softness, but also a fresh cherry note of fruitiness. Hugely sweet and fruity, amazing intensity of dried fruits, currant and fat, sweet, juicy plum. There is a power and a spiciness to this too, but it is a marvellous wine with wonderful Curaçao flavours and acidity. Tom Cannavan Winepages.com
The 1989 Burmester Colheita 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.
