This white port is made from traditional white port varieties, mainly Gouveia, Rabigato and Malvasia Fina. A first class aperitif wine, this is a beautiful amber/honey colour. It shows excellent fruit on the palate, and a long flavorful off-dry finish, typical of the house style you find at La Rosa. This Port has been lightly filtered with no fining and requires no decanting. It should be served slightly chilled and is also a good compliment to rich pates and fois gras. Good to drink cold as an aperitif or with a mixer, White Port and tonic is a particular favorite on the terrace at La Rosa in the summer whilst nibbling on some home produced roasted almonds. Make it like a gin and tonic together with ice and a slice of lemon. It should be consumed within 2 years of bottling.
Wine maker notes
Quinta de la Rosa's White Port is made in the traditional manner in our granite lagares, the grapes are lightly trodden to give its distinctive golden colour, before the free run juice is fermented and fortified at 7 Beaume. Maturation and Bottling: The White Port is then stored in small wooden casks and matured in our own lodge at La Rosa. The White Port is blended from stocks held at La Rosa and has an average age of 2-3 years. Unlike most port shippers, all products are stored and bottled in the Douro (at La Rosa and not Porto), allowing full traceability and ensuring quality from grape to bottle.
