1875 Barbeito Malvasia

SKU #1331158 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 1875 Malvasia has a dark amber/brown color. The bouquet opens aroma by aroma: honey, peppermint, juniper berries and quince. It is a glorious, life-affirming bouquet. The palate is beautifully balanced with vibrant acidity that is entwined with notes of molasses, honey, quince and Lapsang Souchong. It is very refined and focused with a long, sensual finish that never relinquishes its sense of tension and vibrancy. (NM)  (8/2012)

94 points Wine Spectator

 Fascinating bouquet, similar to a mature red wine, with plummy, woodsy and molasses notes. Lovely concentration and richness, like drinking velvet. This has great balance, freshness and subtle length. (BS)  (1/2000)

Country:

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds.
