Barros translates the Portuguese character into wine, combining tradition, authenticity and modern values. Having just celebrated their 100th year trading in 2013 Barros Port is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious companies producing and trading in Port. Much of their success comes from Colheita ports – old tawnies from a single year matured in cask for a minimum period of seven years. Their expertise in Colheita port wine has established them as a multi-awarded, stand out producer of this style.
The 1974 Barros colheita is a port bottled to signify the historic carnation revolution, which name arose from the fact that almost no shots were fired, and Celeste Caeiro offered carnations to the soldiers when the population took to the streets to celebrate the end of the Portugal's dictatorship regime.
Amber colour and very intense aroma, slightly woody, a result of long ageing in cask. Full-bodied, soft and velvety with distinctive flavours of dried fruit, which persist forever.
