The first idea that comes to mind when we think of integrating Porto Colheita into a menu is to consider it as a dessert wine, which is why it is served at the end of the meal. The idea is very correct and it is even as a corollary of the meal that, as a rule, we understand the Harvest. However it is possible to have in this matter a more open and attentive attitude. So I think a very old Harvest should not have the same connection to dessert as we would book a new Harvest, 10 or 12 years old. For me a very old Harvest is always the protagonist, if not the soloist of the end of the concert: he drinks alone without any accompaniment. A middle-aged Harvest - between 20 and 30, for example - may deserve a different treatment and be a great partner, served as a starter, with a foie-gras mit cuit. It can be served in Port glasses or, if you have them, in the special late harvest models that some glass companies have in their portfolio. A younger harvest can be enjoyed at the beginning of the meal with roasted almonds or, as they serve them in the Douro, fried in olive oil and seasoned with salt; but also at the end of the meal with egg desserts as long as not too sweet, such as cream, for example, but also the tatin tatin or other apple tarts.
