Description

This extraordinary 1976 Colheita Port wine from Quevedo was born during one of the hottest and driest years in 20th-century Europe. With meticulous care, it fermented in granite vats and aged for nearly 50 years in chestnut wood barrels. Today, it offers a harmonious and intricate palate, with notes of creme brulee, nuts, spices, and citrus, that will surely tantalize your taste buds and leave a lasting impression.

Tasting notes: This wine's aroma is as elegant as it is complex, with a delightful medley of flavors that include creme brulee, nuts, caramel, almonds, hazelnuts, spices, and citrus.The palate of this port wine is skillfully balanced, exhibiting exceptional precision and a complex array of flavors. The initial taste is sweet, followed by a pleasant acidity that balances the sweetness perfectly. As you continue to sip, you'll notice the subtle presence of spices, which gradually intensify, culminating in a remarkably long and spicy aftertaste. Additionally, notes of creamy creme brulee re-emerge, adding to the wine's overall richness and complexity.

Drink from Now to 2055


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.

Reviews

***94 Points- Robert Parkers- Wine Advocate***
The 1976 Colheita Tawny Port is a field blend, roughly Touriga Franca (35%), Tinta Roriz (20%), Touriga Nacional (15%), Tinta Barroca (10%) and others, bottled in May 2023 with a long cork and 123 grams of residual sugar. It is only here in the Colheita lineup from the producer this time that we begin to get some serious complexity, and that's why this one wins in the group. It is also, certainly, the most concentrated in flavors, leaning to dark caramel, although not as notable in mid-palate depth. Most of all, it has that nuanced finish. It still has notable freshness and it is still reasonably youthful, far from decayed. Nicely balanced and rather elegant, it is pretty tasty and hard to resist. This is a fine Colheita that wins points for both complexity and its tasty conclusion. As I like to note, barring cork failures, this will likely hold indefinitely. Of course, Colheitas don't need to be held, so dive in.
