Description: A blend of wines produced from white grapes grown mainly on the Upper slopes of the Douro Valley. The individual wines are aged in oak vats for about three years, where they acquire mellowness and character. They are blended to produce a rich white port in the traditional smooth, full-bodied style.
Tasting Note: Rich, fragrant nose with aromas of mellow fruit and hints of honey and oak. Full body; velvety palate and long flavoursome finish.
FOOD PAIRING: Traditionally served chilled as an aperitif. It can also be drunk – poured over ice in a glass, topped up with tonic and a leaf of fresh mint. It is the perfect aperitif.
