A fresh and younger blend of Shiraz and Portuguese varieties that are full of flavoursome cherry and star anise. Perfect if you want to develop these characters in your personal blend. If your port blend (one that is based on a fortified red such as Shiraz or Portuguese varieties) is many years old, and you are finding it a bit acidic, including some young Barrel Blend will add a dose of fresh fruit sweetness.
Young port tends to show more primary fruit characteristics where an aged port will taste more nutty, spicy and savoury. Our Premium Tawny is an older and more developed version of this Barrel Blend with more acidity and aged characteristics.
Barrel Blend is part of the standard range with an average age of 2-3 years.
For more information about Home Barrels, see our Barrel Care Guide.
