Colheita, Tawny and Garrafeira Port

This web site is focused on Vintage Port but we have of course also tasted some interesting Ports that are not of the Vintage Port type. We thought it would be interesting to share some tasting notes for some of the older and more rare bottlings that we have tasted. So here are some tasting notes for Colheitas, Tawnies and Garrafeiras that were at least 50 years old when we tasted them.

You find all tasting notes collected on this page, and we also have them under each producer.

This is a list of all producers that we have tasting notes for on Colheita/Tawny:
