Sensational with almond tarts!
The 2000 Quevedo colheita port is an amazing value/quality port from an exceptional vintage. With a bright tawny colour and vivid terracotta highlights this brilliant single harvest tawny continues to charm on the nose with ripe cherries and dried raspberries combined with subtle notes of almonds and little hints of caramel. On the palate it is fresh, rich and powerful with a long chocolate finish. This is a Colheita that will age well in bottle.
Pair this luscious sweet port with almond tarts or caramel and chocolate based desserts. Crème brûlée is a classic combination as is Stilton cheese.

The Sfursat di Valtellina wine is a dry red “Passito” style wine and is made by making wine with dried grapes. The best bunches of Chiavennasca are selected and laid out on specially made mats in aerated purpose-built cellars to dry (similar to the process in Valpolicella for Amarone). The “breva” wind which blows through this region has historically assisted the production of the Sfursat wines. The grapes spend about 3 and a half months drying like this and towards the end of January (once the main winery tasks for the other wines are all finished) the grapes will have lost about 40% of their own weight, the sugars will have concentrated and the signature passito aroma will be present.
