Tawny ports are wines, made from red grapes that are aged in wooden barrels, exposing them to gradual oxidation and evaporation. As a result, the wine mellows to a golden-brown color. The exposure to oxygen imparts “nutty” flavors to the wine, which is blended to match the house style. Brick
Intense amber tawny color. Opulent and voluptuous nose of complex spicy, jammy and nutty aromas, hints of orange flower and a fine oakiness coming from the long period of aging in cask. The palate is full of very rich and concentrated flavor and has a long mellow finish.
Reserve Port has a bright, full ruby color with violet tones. On the nose, very distinctive with fresh blueberries and hints of eucalyptus and gum cistus; a very vibrant young Port with plenty of natural acidity but also balance and pedigree denoting its grade “A” vineyard origins.
Pretty date, caramel and hazelnut husk notes meld nicely, showing good cut through the ginger- and toasted sesame-infused finish. Starts frankly sweet and ends with mouthwatering cut. Drink now. 2,500 cases made.
Made from a traditional process known as sun-dried (soleo) Pedro Ximénez whereby the fruit turns to raisins. Then aged in casks for many years using the traditional Solera system within the ancient cathedral style cellars of Barbadillo. Estate bottled by Bodegas Barbadillo, producers of the finest sherries since 1821.
Straw yellow in color. The classic fino aromas are revealed on the nose; nuts, olives and the evocative suggestion of a patient ageing process. In the mouth it is sharp and exhibits full body and perfect balance.
