TASTING NOTES OF Dalva Colheita 1940:

  • View: medium brown, a touch of green on the edge.
  • Nose: nose of toffee, with lots of fruit.

Intense aroma and taste: fruit jelly, quince jam, spices, in the younger wines. With age the wine develops other tastes: nuts, cinnamon, coffee, but always fresh and elegant.
- Winemaking: Port from a single year harvest. Instead of an indication of age like a blended tawny (10, 20, 30, 40...) the year is always mentioned in the label. Nevertheless, they should not be mistaken with Vintage Port. Once that the "Colheita" must age a minimum of seven years in oak cask (but of course the complexity and the refined aroma and flavors could not reach the heels of an old "Colheita", like for example a rare White "Colheita" Golden White from 1952 bottled in 2009...57 years in french oak pipes).
- Grape Varieties: Old Vines.
- Food Pairing: Goes well with all kinds of desserts, especially those prepared with eggs and nuts almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts).
- Store and Serve Advices: Serve slightly chilled , between 12 and 13ºC, in an appropriate glass.

Red wine with violet reflections. I would highlight the aromas of tobacco.The toasted flavours liked me.
I would suggest that you serve it with a good potatoes stew.
I drank it with my ex.

The had a very deep color. A very well balanced fortified. It wasn't well paired with food, but the wine was good and tasty. It was a gift for my brother and he enjoyed it very much. It is not easy to find in a supermarket. Vintages of Dalva Colheita and 1977 are the best I've ever tasted.
