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. Colheitas can be served slightly chilled as an aperitif or at the end of the meal with desserts, cheese, nuts and dried fruit. In June 2006, Porto Barros was integrated into the Sogevinus Group who are now responsible for growing the brand in the international markets. Vineyard
Traditionally, the vines in the region are grown low, close to the ground. The single or double Guyot and unilateral and bilateral cordons are the methods most frequently used for training the vines. Trellises may be occasionally found but this method is not commonly used nor is it permitted for Port Wine. training methods used include: Simple Guyot, Double Guyot, Unlilateral Cordon, Bilateral Cordon. Trellises are not permitted for Port Wine grapes. Winemaking
The grapes were crushed and underwent an extended maceration on skins in order to obtain a rich wine both in colour and flavour. Fermentation was arrested by the addition grape alcohol in order to produce a naturally sweet wine. Tasting Note
