The 2011 vintage, which was first launched in Portugal last October, will be distributed in the UK by Barwell & Jones from this month, the agency said yesterday (17 February). The 20% abv product will be targeted at the UK on-trade and “independent retail”, a Barwell & Jones spokesperson said. 

“The winery had to date not produced any Ports, so head winemaker David Baverstock wanted to take full advantage of their old, low-yielding vines that produce such concentrated grapes and are therefore perfect for vintage Port - as well as for complex and intense wines,” the spokesperson said.
