Quinta de la Rosa Extra Dry White Port
|Brand||Quinta de la Rosa|
All our ports are made in the 'house style' namely slightly drier without any cloying sweetness that can be associated with some other ports. We also work hard making sure the brandy is well integrated. As with our wines, we search for harmony and equilibrium from our vineyards and we try to enable the grapes to express themselves in the bottle. The La Rosa style is to make well defined wines without too much extraction and tannin. A first class aperitif wine, a beautiful amber/honey colour, it shows excellent fruit on the palate, but at the same time has a long relatively dry finish. This Port 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 favourite 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. For immediate consumption.
Friendly, with unctuous peach and nectarine fruit backed by a twinge of spice. Rounded feel. Reminiscent of a Muscat. Serve chilled. Drink now. 56 cases made.
