Colheita

1992 was the first harvest after the family decided to stop selling to big brands and started the Quevedo’s brand. A wise decision, as this 1992 is one of the best Colheita ever produced! A very special Port to celebrate special moments.

1992

TASTING NOTES

Colour

Brick with red tones

AROMA

Intense and focused aromas of sun dried fruits, spices, old wood and grilled nuts.

PALATE

The entry on the palate is rich and full of dried fruit flavours, the mid-palate is tight and dryer with smoky character, the finish is explosive with a multi-layared and very long finish lingering on flavours of cinnamon, candied fruits and poached fruits.

PRESS COMMENTS & ACCOLADES

Colheita 1992

94/100
Mark Squires

The 1992 Colheita Tawny Port is a field blend made up of roughly 35% Touriga Franca, 20% Tinta Roriz, 15% Touriga Nacional, 10% Tinta Barroca and others, aged for 24 years in used oak. This, the third release of this 1992, was bottled in 2018 with a long cork and 101 grams of residual sugar. Juicy and lively, this dribbles the sugar over the palate at first taste, but it quickly dries out and becomes more about the complexity, the bitter chocolate. The finish is long, powerful and penetrating. Some may prefer more sex appeal, but I liked this a lot. There will be another few releases of this as it gets older but with increasingly long times between releases. July 2018.
