Description

1974 Colheita Port.
This rare port-wine has been stored in seasoned oak casks since the 1974 harvest until it was bottled this year.

Tasting Notes: The 1974 Port from Maynard has a very complex nose with marked volatile acidity, exotic wood, liquorice sauce, orange zest, lavender and light nougat. Medium weight, elegant and quite intense on the palate. Intense and long finish.


Colheita Port Storage and Serving Advice:
Colheita Port should be stored in a cool and dry place, sheltered from light and temperature fluctuations, and the bottle should remain in an upright position. If stored correctly, Colheita Ports will keep for decades in the bottle. Over time, it is natural that a little sediment will form at the bottom of a bottle of colheita Port wine. Once opened colheita Port should be stored in a fridge and should be consumed within 3 months. Colheita Ports do not require decanting and are best served at a temperature between 14 and 16°C.
