  • Offer 2005 Colheita Port, BarrosPort, Port & Dessert Wine

    2005 Colheita Port, Barros

    £2700 17% saving

    Having celebrated their 100th year of 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 Ports has established them as the stand out producer of this style. Barros leaves their Colheita Ports to mature in cask until being hand bottled to order. The loss of wine from evaporation (known as 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.

    This 2005 Colheita port is a bright brown colour with reddish hints in the glass.  Complex nose, characterised by the presence of the wood notes wonderfully blended with aromas of spice, dried fruits and delicate hints of fruit jam. Well structured with good balance and firm, round tannins that emerge on the intense and velvety palate. Delightful persistence on the finish.
