Constantino's 1910 Colheita Port
The port house Sociedad do Vinhos Porto Constantino (S.V.P) was founded in 1877 by Constantino de Almeida who went on to purchase the Quinta do Crasto estate in the Douro Valley and was a independent producer until it was acquired by the reputable Ferreira group
Colheita Port is similar to Vintage Port in that it is produced from the crop of a single exceptional year. However, while Vintage Ports spend only a brief 2 years in large oak vats and the majority of their ageing in bottle, Colheita Ports are matured exclusively in smaller oak barrels for as many years as the producer deems necessary.
This bottle is from the 1910 vintage, bottled in 1971.
