Colheita 1998, Quinta Do Crasto

35.99

Colheita’s (meaning ‘harvest’ in Portuguese) are wines from a single vintage year aged for a minimum of seven years, in cask prior to bottling, during which time they begin to take on the characteristics of a Tawny Port. Two dates should appear on the label: the year of harvest – in this case 1998 – and the year of bottling 2017. The latter date is significant, as the wine improves in the cask not the bottle.This is from hand harvest old vines, foot trodden in traditional lagares, with stems, then aged for 19 years in 550 litre oak casks and bottled without filtration.
