WHAT MAKES THIS WINE UNIQUE?This White Reserve Port is a blend of high-quality, white port wines, from various years, blended to showcase the house style.
GRAPE:A field blend of white grape varieties planted on schist soils between 650 - 1970 ft (200 - 600m) above sea level from various plots in the Douro.
PAIRING SUGGESTIONS:Drink this delicious white port on the rocks or as part of a refreshing cocktail such as a Caipi-porto!
VINIFICATION AND AGING:Spontaneous fermentation with natural indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged in 650L chestnut casks or pipas. This port has an average age of 6 years.
LOCATION, SOIL, CLIMATE:The soil in which the Douro Valley vines are planted is made up of schist, a slate-like metamorphic rock. Rich in nutrients, it also has useful water retention properties. The soils of the Douro share the essential property of many great vineyard soils, the ability to allow the vines to thrive while restricting their access to water and consequently their yields. Combined with the small thick skinned berries of the traditional Port grape varieties, the dry conditions produce wines of great richness and depth.
TASTING NOTES:Golden in color. Citrus and mineral aromas, with notes of lemon zest, peach, and dried fruits. On the palate, it is lively, with noticeable acidity and freshness. Once again, the notes of peach, spices and nuts, such as almond and walnut, stand out. A port wine with vivacity and freshness.
