Colheita port - 16 year old port. A single vintage tawny port is called Colheitas. Instead of an indication of age (10, 20 ...) the actual harvest year is stated. However, they should not be confused with vintage port while a vintage port will have been bottled approximately 18 months after harvest and will continue to mature, a Colheita may have spent 20 or more years in wooden barrels before being bottled and sold.
