Product Code
A very nice 2008 Colheita Port that has a deep red colour with brownish glaze. The aroma is rich in ripe fruit with a touch of spice and vanilla notes. In the mouth it is fresh and balanced with a presence of silky tannins. It has a long and refreshing finish making it ideal for that after dinner treat.

Caves Messias

Caves Messias is a historic family owned producer renowned for their colheita and vintage ports. Founded in 1926 by Messias Baptista, the company has remained a family owned business up to the present day. The most famous estate is Quinta do Cachão which has its slopes adjacent to the River Douro, in the sub region Cima Corgo. The vineyard was first planted in 1845 by the Baron Pebble sendomais and later acquired by family Afonso Cabral, who in turn sold it to Messiah family in 1956. In order to increase production capacity, Messias acquired another adjoining property, Quinta do Rei, then belonging Gonzales Byass.
