Indulge in the full-bodied character of Colheita 2008, featuring a complex nose of chestnut, spices, dry grape, fig, and plum.

With remarkable aging potential, it promises to unveil increasingly intricate complexities over time.

Winemakers Notes

COLOUR
Intense brick colour

AROMA
Complex nose of chestnut, spices, dry grape, fig, and plum.

PALATE
The wine's full-bodied character is apparent on the palate, and it presents noticeable tannins that contribute to its elegant quality. Towards the end, the wine mellows, with dried fruits such as fig and plum making an appearance. There are still some fresh notes from the harvest that can still be detected, while the wine slowly transitions towards drier notes and nuts as it evolves.
