Barao De Vilar 2012 LBV PORT

Vinification

This superb Barão de Vilar LBV 2012 is a blend from full, rich and fruity wines of a single year which has been specially chosen for ageing from 4 to 6 years in oak casks prior to bottling. The grapes were foot trodden in granite "lagares” and stored in large oak vats called "tonels”. The special characteristics of this LBV are its richness, depth of flavour and powerful, attractive bouquet. In order to retain as much and depth as possible, the blend has been bottled in the same way as Vintage Port, without any stabilization. As a result, the port may throw a deposit.

Tasting Notes

It is an excellent Port to accompany cakes with red and black fruit jams, cheeses, ice-cream, Tiramisú or as a digestive. Can be left open for a couple of months. (Image show a 2009 when infact we are currently supplying 2012,same style bottle)
