Description

The 2011 Messias Colheita Port represents a rich and mature expression of a cask-aged Port, offering a taste of Portuguese winemaking heritage and the nuanced flavours that come from extended barrel aging.

Tasting notes:
The extensive barrel ageing has given this port wine a tawny colour with a reddish hue. Its complex aroma includes dried fruits, nutty notes, caramel, and hints of spice and vanilla. The texture is smooth, elegant, and has a long, lingering finish.

Serving & Food Pairing
Colheita Ports are ready-to drink and do not require decanting. Best enjoyed slightly chilled at 12-13ºC they will work wonders if pairing with treacle tart, crème brulee or nut based desserts, like hazelnut praline. Once opened colheita Port should be stored in a fridge and should be consumed within 3 months.

Colheita Port Storage
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.
