Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Remarkable! The Dalva 1995 Colheita pours with a lovely deep amber hue. The aromas are heavenly! Flavours show rich roasted nuts, dried dates and fig preserves. The palate is luscious with high acidity a long nutty finish. Tasted Dec 2016 - @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Elizabeth Vickers rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This bottle was opened for Christmas 2018 (can't believe it was on the shelf for 2 years!) and consumed over the next week or so.
The bottle was enjoyed with various sweets, including the traditional Christmas fruit cake from the Abbey. I can't say it was overly exceptional...I wonder if my taste expectations are getting jaded or conditioned to a good port? Still it was a lovely accompanyment to the festive season.
Produced by C. Da Silva, this Portuguese dessert wine is matured in the barrel until just before bottling. "Colheita" translates to "harvest" and is a single vintage-dated Tawny Port typically aged in cask for seven or more years and can spend as much as a half of a century maturing in wood. - Community Wine Reviews
