Barros Colheita Port 2005, Douro, Portugal
Barros are known for their outstanding "Colheita" Ports - these are all from a single vintage and vineyard, then aged for an extended period in large casks, before being bottled to order (this one was bottled in 2020, as denoted on thee back label).
The result are elegant Ports, lighter in colour than their "Vintage" counterparts, with an amazing level of herbal, dried fruit, spice and savoury character. I love them, these are bottles that you can open, pop in the fridge door, then drink over the course of a few weeks (or days!) with things like lighter cheeses and charcuterie, or maybe just a small glass once everyone else has gone to bed!
