This limited production wine from one cask of aged tawny is amazingly concentrated. The spice, the wood flavors and the acidity have all come together to a point of supreme maturity. This is a fine wine, ready to drink and very memorable. - Roger Voss

The 1969 Colheita Tawny Port Vale d. Maria will be bottled (typically, on demand) with a glass bar-top cork in late 2019. There's only one cask, so it is the same blend on every release. This is the first release. Sweet and succulent, this has plenty of power to support the fruit and a very long finish. Delicious and balanced, it does everything well. It is pretty brilliant and irresistible at the moment, effortlessly projecting both harmony and complexity. This is the first in a series of old Tawnies that the winery plans on releasing. It's a great start.
