Description

Colheitas are dated Tawnies from one single harvest. The minimum age requirement is 7 years, but the tradition at Quinta da Devesa is to age several more years before bottling. The wine ages at their cellars in "balseiros", "tonéis" or 550 litre casks.

Tasting Notes:
The Quinta da Devesa Colheita 1970 White presents us with an outstanding bouquet, a very crisp acidity, due to the complexity, refined quality and long aftertaste.
This White Colheita is really impressive in Its aroma of candied orange, exotic resins and honey hints. On the palate is really delicious and subtle, with a very long and vigorous aftertaste.

Reviews

***93 Points - Mark Squires - eRobert Parker***
The 1970 White Colheita Port is a field blend coming in with 109 grams of sugar and 21% alcohol. It was bottled with a bar-top cork in 2018. Far more interesting than the less nuanced 1969 White Colheita, this is rich and delicious with traces of caramel and a smooth finish. The 1969 may have more power, but this is far tastier and more complex. As they both continue to age in barrel (and future releases are planned), I won't be surprised if the somewhat fresher 1969 overtakes this, but at the moment, this is the one I'd buy. Reasonable minds might differ, and it is pretty close.
