Caldas White Port

75 cl

Vinified like a red port, fermenting with the skins for 3-4 days, to extract more flavours and richness. The fermentation was stopped with the addition of 'Aguardente' (wine spirit) 77% V/V at the same sugar level as a red Port (Around 100g/L)

Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Rich notes of salty caramel
Palate Caramel and maple syrup, with hints of apricots and orange peel. Velvety, very aromatic, its definitely a new and very welcome interpretation of white port.

5 Star Award in Decanter 2010 White Port is rarely worth taking seriously but the Alves de Sousa is not your typical ordinary White Port- it has so much more complexity and characters. Perfect balance between the sweetness and the acidity and the dry nutty character.'
