Barbeito Single Harvest 2008 50cl

50cl

This wine originates from a single vineyard located in the lower slopes of Estreito de Câmara de Lobos, in the south coast of Madeira Island. Half of the grapes were harvested a week before they reached full maturation, thus obtaining higher acidity levels. This characteristic was reinforced by the use of continuous press in the winemaking process. The ageing process began in March 2019 by the traditional Canteiro method, under moderate temperatures, in old French oak casks. In March 2019, 2.986 bottles were filled, all individually numbered.

Awards and/or Press Quotes "The great challenge in making a Tinta Negra is to find a balance. Getting the fruit to add nerves, tension. Ricardo picked half of the grapes a little earlier in order to ensure a more vibrant acidity and the other half later, keeping the primary fruit. The result is good. The wine is soft, easy, with good freshness and a well tied set." 16.5/20 - Revista de Vinhos
