Colheita in Portuguese means 'harvest'. This name is also applied to tawny ports of a single harvest. These can only be released for sale from their ninth year and must have spent this time maturing in wood.

Niepoort is one of the finest producers of Colheita in the trade, a tradition going back to the beginnings of the company. To create good Colheita requires intimate knowledge of the ports as well as the ageing techniques best suited to them.

Niepoort tends to stagger the bottlings of its Colheitas over many years, which means you could find the same Colheita with different bottling dates. The older the bottling date the more cask age the port has.

  • Bottles are sealed with a cork. (More info)
