Garafeira is a very rare style of Port and many Port lovers have never even heard of it, and even fewer have ever tasted one. Oscar has delved into his family's private cellars to bring you something really special. This wine has never been tasted by the public outside of his cellar.
Garrafeira is a special category of port. It is produced from grapes of a single-harvest and so carries a vintage year on the bottle: After ageing in cask for six years in cask, Quevedo bottled a small quantity of their 2000 and 1994 Port in glass demijohns so that the ageing continues in glass rather than cask. This type of ageing adds a unique character known as "cheiro has garrafa" meaning "savour or essence of the bottle". This helps to produce an elegant, smooth Port that is delicate, fresh and possesses great finesse.
The tasting will compare these rare ports to their Colheita (barrel-aged) counterparts so that you can see how they have evolved differently over the years.
The pack contains 90ml sample bottles of:
- 2000 Garrafeira Port
- 1994 Garrafeira Port
- 2000 Colheita Port

The bottles are 90ml which adds up to a total of 360 ml (just under half of a regular 75cl bottle). This should be enough for 2 to share the experience.
