Barros Late Bottled Vintage 2011

Established at the beginning of the 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 along the years, and its position on 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 nowadays famous, 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 distinctly different character between the vintages. Try chilled aged Tawnies as a fashionable alternative to vintage port.

Grapes: The traditional varieties from the Douro. The vines are cultivated on terraces supported by stone walls, or on platforms held by natural slopes on the contours of the hillsides.

Soil: Schists.

Vinification: From a careful selection of grapes and an extended maceration in order to obtain the necessary richness, colour and intensity needed for a LBV port. Fermentation was arrested by adding grape alcohol in order to produce a naturally sweet wine.

Ageing: Bottled after 4 years in cask.

Serve: At 15 to 18°C with desserts.

Taste: Deep colour with aromas reminiscent of ripe berry fruits and mulberry. Full bodied with a long finish.
