Established at the beginning of the 20th century, Barros, Almeida & C0 - Vinhos S.A., is undoubtedly, one of the most prestigious companies producing and trading in port. Nowadays, the Barros Group is composed of several companies acquired or established over the years, and its position in the port market is an important one (about 5% of total sales) producing in its Quintas up the Douro about 600 pipes of port. Barros Ports are now famous and appreciated all over the world.
Most of its success comes from the Old Tawnies from a single year - Colheita Ports - high quality wines matured in cask during a minimum period of 8 years. These are superb and with a distinctly different character from each vintage. Try chilled aged Tawnies as a fashionable alternative to vintage port.
Grapes: Traditional grapes from the region including; Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela, Tinta Barroca
Viticulture and Vinification: Grapes are selected, macerated on their skins then partially fermented. Aged in oak wood casks.
Serve: Between 15 and 18C as an aperitif or with cheese or chocolate. Taste: Straw colour with a brownish rim. Intense and delicate aroma, red fruit, dry figs and a touch of oak. An evolving taste, velvety with a long persistent finish.
