This is an opportunity to taste a perfectly aged, mature Bairrada, showcasing the capacity for longevity in which this region is known. A library release from the winery itself, with the bottles kept in pristine condition for decades, these wines show a complexity that cannot be derived in any other way. Caves Sãn João is the only winery in Portugal offering library releases of still wines commercially, with vintages going back to the 1950s.

Winemaking Notes:
Grapes fermented with extended skin contact in open top tanks. The wine spent 24 months maturing in cement tanks. It was filtered and then bottled.
