Barros Colheita 1996

Bright brown-tawny colour with slight reflexes of red. The wine reveals a complex bouquet of dried fruits. In the mouth it is delicate with a very balanced acidity, wonderful sweetness and excellent length.

Barros is an outstanding brand in the Port Wine History, since its foundation in 1913. Following a solid and successful path, confirmed by several prizes and as result of an energetic trade policy. Its brand positioning in the market has granted strong recognition, especially in Colheitas, a Port Wine category in which Barros is regularly awarded.

TASTING NOTES:
Amber colour with a bouquet reminiscent of dried fruits and spice. Soft and velvety on the palate with a lingering finish.
- Winemaker: Pedro Sá
- Winemaking: The best cuvees are chosen for Colheita ports that have been matured for at least 7 years in oak casks. During this period the wine is racked several times. Bottling is made as required but the label must state the age of the wine, the bottling year and that the wine has been matured in wood. Old Tawnies from a single year, matured in cask for a minimum period of 8 years.
- Grape Varieties: Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional.
- Food Pairing: Good as an aperitif, with desserts, with cheese, with chocolates and also with a good cigar.
- Store and Serve Advices: Serve at a temperature of 17 to 18ºC.
