Professional Wine Reviews for Feuerheerd's Colheita Port 1990

Rated 91 by Robert Parker
The 1990 Colheita Port (Feuerheerd's) is a blend of 30% Touriga Nacional, 35% Touriga Franca, 15% Tinta Roriz, 10% Tinta Barroca and 10% Tinto Cão, coming in at 114 grams per liter of residual sugar. It is a bit lighter-styled but it is laced with all of those classic, old Tawny flavors, adding in complexity what it lacks in power and concentration. Quite elegant, it has a crisp, fresh finish and subtle intensity. Overall, there's a graceful feel to go with its fine and complex flavors. This was scheduled for release in September 2015.

Additional Information on Feuerheerd's Colheita Port 1990

Winery: Feuerheerd's

Region: Porto

Porto, situated in the Douro Valley of Portugal, has long been recognized as a vitally important center for viticulture and wine production. Of course, the city itself is most readily associated with the beautifully aromatic and utterly delicious Port wines, which have been continually popular around the world since the 18th century. The wineries in and around Porto know that their terroir is highly special, with a wonderful mix of gravelly and clay based soils, packed full of minerals carried by the river that flows through it. This, combined with the hot and sunny climate, creates perfect conditions for high quality grape cultivation, and there are dozens of varietals which thrive in and around Porto, many of which are used for making the famous fortified 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.
