Barros Port, 2019
In Presentation Box
Description and Reviews:
This distinctly Portuguese Port House, has created a Classic Vintage with an approachable profile, can be enjoyed whilst young or cellared for future enjoyment.
The heart of the Douro, between the subregions of Low and Cima Corgo, is the cradle of this Barros Classic Vintage, “a wine with a balsamic, floral and balanced character”, highlights Carlos Alves. Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz are the three main grape varieties for this blend, with a small percentage of Sousão.
With a dark red hue, this Vintage presents a fragrant and clean nose where floral aromas combine with citrus notes, notes of black fruit, chocolate, and some spice. On the palate, it is young and fresh, with the fruit enhancing the excellent balance between tannin and acidity. This is an assertive Vintage with a long, intense, and tantalising finish.
Richard Mayson 16.5/20 points
From the Baixo and and Cima Corgo, mostly Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz with a small percentage of Sousão: a bit subdued on the nose initially becoming floral and a touch balsamic as it opened up; attractive sweet berry fruit backed by dusty tannins leading to a rather angular finish, a bit skinny compared with some of the wines here. 4112 bottles declared. 16.5
