Description

This outstanding 1960 wine is a beautiful sweet fortified white wine from the Bairrada region in Portugal.

Only 1000 bottles were made and these are drinking perfectly. Made from the must of red grapes, the wine is matured in oak for a minimum of 10 years. This is an amazing sweet wine that can be drunk as an aperitif or with any sweet dessert. This wine is of exceptional quality and value and is highly recommended by our wine buyer.

On the nose there are complex aromas of dried apricots, nuts, honey and a suggestion of citrus fruit. Served slightly chilled, this wine has rich mouthfeel, medium sweetness and and an amazing honeyed and citrus, delicate orange peel. The finish is eternal.

Established in 1920 by the brothers José, Manuel and Albano Costa, the wine-cellars Caves São João are a family company that, in its beginnings was dedicated to the commercialization of fine wines of the Douro region and liqueurs. This company, which is nowadays the most ancient wine-producing family company in full activity in the district of Anadia, turned to the production and commercialization of table wines from Bairrada after a bill passed in the 30s prohibited the production of Oporto Wines outside the area of Vila Nova de Gaia.
