Description

The 1974 Colheita from Barros really is something rather special.  This wonderful aged Tawny from the 1974 vintage expertly balances power and finesse, being rich, engaging and amazingly complex.  There’s an abundance of prunes, spice and dried fruits along with delicate oak which carry through to the complex, silky palate. 


Barros Colheita 1974 is produced by the traditional Port method. The grapes were destemmed, crushed and underwent a careful skin maceration to extract colour, aromatics and fine tannins. Fermentation took place at controlled temperatures of between 28 to 30°C in vats (known as lagares) with constant pump overs during fermentation, until the desired Baumé was reached. At this point, grape brandy was added, which is known as the ‘benefit’, resulting in a fortified wine with perfect balance. A wine of exceptional quality, from a single harvest, a Colheita wine matures in oak barrels for varying periods of time, but never less than seven years. Produced from a single year, this exquisite Port was matured in cask and shows considerable finesse.
