Full, fruity and stylish. Formally known as Vintage Reserve. Deep ruby colour, with complex aromas of ripe fruit. Many call it Liquid Christmas Cake! A full bodied and rich port with great structure. Ideal as an aperitif or with desserts and strong cheese. Established in the beginning of the century, Barros, Almeida & C0 Vinhos S.A., is undoubtedly, one of the most prestigious companies producing and trading in port. Vintage: N/V Grapes: The traditional varieties from the Douro. Soil: Schists. Vinification: 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 of grape alcohol in order to produce a naturally sweet wine. Ageing: Matured in wooden casks for a minimum of 3 years. Serve: At 15 to 18°C as an aperitif or with desserts and cheese Notes: Ruby colour, with complex aromas of ripe fruit. A full bodied and rich port with good structure
