The Barros 2018 Classic Vintage is from the heart of the Douro, a wine with a more delicate, mineral and balsamic character. This Classic Vintage is the result of the selection of the best grapes from vines at different altitudes and solar exposures in the Cima-Corgo subregion. Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz are the three main grape varieties for this blend, which also comprises a small percentage of Sousão.

With a deep red colour, this Vintage stands out for its perfumed nose, with floral notes well combined with notes of fresh fruit and spice. A voluptuous wine, with well-integrated tannins, juicy, with a firm structure and an engaging finish. A Vintage with an engaging profile, enabling it to be enjoyed whilst young and therefore ideal for Vintage beginners, despite its ageing potential.

"2018 was a particularly challenging year, with adverse weather conditions resulting in a lower yield, albeit of excellent quality"
Carlos Alves
Sogevinus’ Winemaker and Masterblender

Only 3734 bottles have been produced of this Classic Vintage from Barros, a Port house whose history is distinctively Portuguese.

Vinication
Hand-picked at the optimum time, the grapes are then destemmed, crushed and converted into
wine through a process of careful maceration to extract their colour, tannins and aromas, enhanced
by constant churning during fermentation. is takes place in vats (lagares) at a controlled temperature
(between 28-30°C) until the right degree of sweetness (baumé) is achieved. At this point,
grape brandy is added to create the final fortified wine. Wine of exceptional quality, made from one
single harvest, bottled between 2 and 3 years after harvest. Deep-red in colour, complex, full-bodied
and with remarkable ageing potential.
