Colheita

1974 is a historical year for Portugal. It marks the end of the dictatorship and very few colheitas were produced in this year. This is an historical gem preserved in our cellar over 3 generations of Port wine makers. Produced by our grand parents in the traditionnal way, fermented in granite mills, it is a very special Port to celebrate a landmark.

Winemaking Details

Viticulture: A very generous harvest produced elegant wines under normal weather condition throughout the year. Hand-harvested, sustainable and dry farmed grapes from Quinta Vale d'Agodinho vineyard.

Fermentation: Fermented on the native yeasts in granite vats (Lagares). Aging: Two years of aging in stainless steel tanks. Once most of the natural decantion was finished, this Port was moved to seasoned oak balseiro and chestnut wood casks to be aged for more 48 years. Unfiltered.
