Colheita Port (Includes Kopke gift box as illustrated)
Garnet colour, with a bright nose of pomegranate, strawberries and cherries. Cherry-vanilla flavour that lingers in the finish.

Lighter and more delicate than vintage ports, the colheita ports are immediately understandable and enjoyable to the novice port drinker and an ongoing pleasure to the experienced.
