1880 Single Vintage Colheita

flagPort / Portugal

Long, rich with some rancio notes. Still lots of life and lively. Super racy and fresh, in fact. According to the label, the wine was 'Made in the nineteenth century, matured in the twentieth and identified for your enjoyment in the twenty-first.' It was agreed that the wine had lasted so well because it had been matured in the Douro. Joanna Delaforce had doubts that it was all 1880 and indeed it turned out to contain a small proportion - 5 to 7% - of Niepoort 1945. There was a note of cinnamon too.
