Colheita Ports are Tawny Ports made from the very best wines of a single harvest (Colheita means harvest in Portuguese). Although they are aged in the same way as blended tawny Ports (10, 20, 30 and over 40 years) in seasoned oak casks, they differ in that they are representative of one single year and not blended to express a consistent style with little or no variation.

The 2007 has aromas of red fruit zest and floral, honeysuckle scent. On the palate there is fresh, pure fruit, very characteristic of 2007. There is a lovely balance between the ripe and youthful fruit and the 10 years+ of cask-ageing, providing an enticing, smooth texture ending on a high note with a typically Dow dry and spicy finish.

For over two centuries, the name of Dow’s has been closely linked with the finest ports from the vineyards of the Upper Douro Valley. Since 1912, when Andrew James Symington became a partner in Dow’s, five generations of Symington winemakers have lived and worked at their vineyards of Quinta do Bomfim and Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira from where they have produced many memorable wines.
