The Royal Oporto Colheita is one of the many selections of fine Ports from Portugal that are now available at Clark Wine Center and other wine outlets of Yats Wine Cellars in Manila.
Tasting notes: Colheita Ports are similar to tawny ports in such a way as they have extended aging in oak barrels, minimum of 8 years. However, unlike Tawny Ports which are blended, Colheitas only come from a single good vintage and as a result are more concentrated in flavor than Tawny Ports. These sweet ports have a lot of spiced fruit and dried fruit characteristics. Pair them with baked and poached fruit desserts or blue cheeses.
