Douro Valley Port
Kopke Fine White Port is the basic port wine, made from selected 3-4 year old blends from several different lots in the Douro Superior and Cima Corgo.
The vinification takes place in the Douro Valley on Kopkes Quinta de São Luiz on the south bank of the Douro River, a few km from Pinhão. Here, traditions, research and one of Portugal’s most modern vinification centers go hand in hand to create the ideal conditions for the production of quality port wine.
Aromatic green grapes are used, approximately equal parts Viosinho, Verdelho, Malvasia and Rabigato. Chief winemaker Pedro Sá has stopped the fermentation with approx. 100 grams of residual sugar in the fermenting wine, so you achieve a good balance between sweetness, acidity and alcohol.
The color is light with hints of green shades and the taste is spiced with light sweetness and grape-identical aromas, citrus and a little honey and almonds.
Serve at 8-14 degrees depending on the application.
Remember to use a good white wine glass for the purpose; shot glasses and other wine crimes are not enough!
White Port is most often enjoyed as an aperitif – possibly mixed with tonic, a slice of lemon (port-tonic) and ice cubes.
