Colheitas are dated tawnies aged in cask. The minimum age requirement is 7 years, but the tradition at Niepoort is to age several more years in the casks before bottling. The wine takes on a tawny hue. Wood and nutty tones are evident on the palate due to the wine’s slow ageing in old casks. This 1987 is a classic tawny color with a few hints of brown/orange on the rim, a very refined aroma of crystallized tangerine peel and a subdued nutty character, very smooth on the palate with nutty character evident along with a long spirity finish. After the meal Colheita combines well with Crème caramel, and especially with desserts that contain dried fruits or nuts.
