Vista Fine Tawny Port
£20.00 Per Bottle
Vista Alegre Fine Tawny Port is a strong red colour with brownish hues.
Delicate with a hint of spices, it’s smooth and well-matured to give great fruity touches.
A traditional dessert wine best served at room temperature, you’ll find it pairs perfectly with strong cheeses, rich coffee and chocolate flavours, and fruit-based puddings.
There’s a fresh and delicate aroma to this port with an elegant and smooth flavour. You’ll also pick up touches of both dried fruits and spices developed as the port’s matured for five years in oak casks.
Recommended food pairings
We love a cheddar cheese with a tawny port. Try Haford: it’s not as acidic as your typical cheddar, but its supple paste and nutty taste make it a great pairing for a smooth port. This dessert port also goes perfectly with dried fruit desserts, ice creams and caramels for real indulgence.
A blend of five regional grapes make this port: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca and Tinto Cão. The different grapes combine to help the port develop its rich, smooth flavour.
The grapes are first partially striped and lightly crushed, before being fermented with skin maceration in a temperature-controlled setting. Brandy is added at the perfect time thanks to careful control at the winery, giving the desired sweetness. The port’s then matured in oak casks for around five years to develop the spices and smooth notes.
