Drier than the average port, Quinta de la Rosa White Port has delicious fruity flavours. It still has a long finish, but with summery tastes that mean it’s best enjoyed slightly chilled.
Recommended food pairings
Light, creamy and buttery cheeses pair best with a chilled port. Our choice is the famous Ossau-Iraty: one of the world’s oldest cheeses that has slightly floral flavours. You can also enjoy Quinta de la Rosa White Port as an aperitif, simply topped with ice and slice of lemon.
Quinta de la Rosa White Port uses traditional white port grape varieties: Viosinho, Gouveia, Rabigato and Malvasia Fina. The pressings of these white grapes are first made into white wine before creating the port.
When the pH of the wine starts to rise, around 10% of the juice is drawn off into stainless steel vats. Here, it’s made into white port, with brandy added to stop the fermentation at just the right time. The port is then stored in small wooden casks and matured on site.
