Professional Wine Reviews for Feuerheerd's Colheita Port Port Blend 1975

Rated 93 by Robert Parker
The 1975 Colheita Port (Feuerheerd’s) is a blend of 35% Touriga Franca, 15% Touriga Nacional, 20% Tinta Barroca, 15% Tinta Roriz and 15% Tinto Cão, coming in at 133 grams per liter of residual sugar. It is light, but lingering. While it is relatively light for its age, it still seems to have more concentration than the 1982, also reviewed, plus a sharper, more intense feel. That has some pros and cons. The acidity and the age lend this more complexity, but it does finish rather sharply, without quite the same sex appeal. Overall, it does the job. Here, as with most all Tawnies, it is important to drink this a bit cool. This is scheduled for release in September 2015.

Winery Feuerheerd's

Region: Porto

The city and region of Porto in Portugal has long been regarded as one of the most important wine producing areas on earth, and home to many of the world's most distinctive and characterful wines and fortified wines. So important was it, in the 18th century, it became part of the third ever protected wine region, following one in Hungary, and one in Italy. The wineries of Porto have generations of experience and expertise when it comes to working their land, and the fertile valley sides in the Douro region where Porto is found offers plenty of opportunities for growing a wide range of grape varietals. Most commonly, Porto wineries cultivate Tinta Barroca, Tinta Cão, Tempranillo, Touriga Francesa, and Touriga Nacional grapes, as these are the primary varietals used in the production of Porto's famous Port wines.

Country: Portugal

One of the oldest regions of Portugal for wine production and vine cultivation is the Bairrada, the lush and clay-rich region responsible for an impressive range of red, white and rosé wines of exceptional quality. As with much of the country, this region benefits from long, hot summers, allowing the grapes to ripen to full maturity and thus carry a wide range of flavors and aromas. However, each region of Portugal produces wines which reach a high level of quality, from the more urbanized regions around Lisbon and Porto, where the famous fortified and Colares wines originate, to the island of Madeira and the Dao river valley, which each have their own distinctive wine cultures. The several thousand years of viticultural history in Portugal has allowed Portuguese wineries to master their own traditional techniques, which are still employed to this day across the country, yielding excellent results for the world to enjoy.
