Growing areas Tinta Barroca (sometimes Tinta Barocca) is one of the most common red-wine varieties in the Douro Valley of northern Portugal. It is also growned in Western Cape, South Africa.
Features wine Although it does not produce varietal wines of any distinction, it excels as a blending component. There are just a handful of single-variety Tinta Barroca wines produced in the world, all of them in South Africa. Intense, super-ripe, high-alcohol Tinta Barroca has evolved into something of a trademark style for some vineyards of the Western Cape. A handful of producers here also use Tinta Barroca to make Port-style fortified wines in which Pinotage is a common blending partner.
Notes Thanks to its generous yields, Tinta Barroca is extremely popular with growers; it is the third most widely planted variety in the Douro. It holds markedly less sway with winemakers, who prefer the quality of Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo), the valley's most and second-most widely planted varieties.
