a 2002 vintage Colheita Port Wine from Barros Port. The Barros from the excellent 2002 vintage is full-bodied, soft and velvety with distinctive flavours of dried fruit, which persist forever.
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 Colheitas has established them as the stand out producer of this style. Barros leave their Colheita ports to mature in cask until being hand bottled to order. The loss of wine from evaporation (what they call the angel’s share) is much higher in comparison to bottle ageing. It is a sacrifice they are willing to make and one that helps them achieve unsurpassed quality in their Colheita wines.
Enjoy colheitas slightly chilled, as an aperitif or at the end of the meal with desserts, cheese, nuts and dried fruit.
