This is, by far, my favorite style of tawny Port. "Regular" tawny wines are made to express a Port shipper's style, but Colheita ports reflect an individual vintage but in a tawny style. This wine spent 15 years in wood to develop a nutty, caramel, flavor base and was then bottled in 2009.
Orange peel, dried currant, rose petals, and caramel covered nut flavors swirl around in an elegant, complex, wine. Ready to drink now but will hold for a few years. Serve it a little chilled with Stilton!
