10 Years White Port

Port

10 Years White Port

A very elegant White Port with a high aromatic complexity originated from oxidative handling and a good extract from prolonged skin maceration. It's elaborated with different lots of old White Port of great quality, aged in casks for more than 10 years. It should be served chilled as an aperitif but it also goes down a treat as a dessert wine or simply on its own at the end of a meal.

Tasting Notes

Brilliant golden color with a nutty aroma and delicate raisins. Sweet and fresh on the palate, interacting perfectly with the spirit which in turn gives a superb structure to the wine.

Vinification

The white grapes fermented in the lagares after the foot treading and a long skin maceration, to give structure to the wine. Following fortification with grape brandy, the wine ages for many years in casks and in old oak vats.
