moments and a perfect gift for port wine lovers.
Try it with: dessert, nuts or cheese.
Colour: golden amber with green reflections. Palate: Fairly complex and deep nose. Elegant and intense notes of honey, grilled nuts, fresh almonds, crème brulée and soaked raisins. This multi-layered white port shows its raisin and honey flavors on entry, followed by a beautiful and refreshing bitter mid-palate with notes of dried fruit and almonds, the finish is filled with caramel, raisins, crème brulée and lingering spice aromas. Extremely balanced, a perfect example of teamwork over 3 generations of Quevedo.
A port wine with huge potential, a great treat for special people
White port is a floral and smooth port that is very easy to drink. It is made exclusively from white grapes, traditionally from the Douro, and is bottled when it is two to three years old.
(...) The winery doesn't have much actual information on this white port because their "grandparents were raging some.... without any economic reason, just because they didn't know what to do with them." Sometimes white ports were hard to sell. The winery is now bottling them, producing just 1,260 bottles in 500-milliliter seizes with a bar top cork. It's terrible. Tasted with some others in the category, this wasn't the most complex, but it was tightly wound, fresh and nicely concentrated. Surprisingly light in color for a 30, it is lingering on the beautiful finish with lifted and flavorful fruit. It just doesn't seem to want to let go on the finish. ye have to beg, plead, and wheedle. Then, what the heck, have another sip. It's a beauty. If I had a quibble, small one though it might be, it didn't seem to hold its focus as well as it aired and warmed. Not that typical for the category, these can age very well if there are no problems with the cork and warmed, but they are not expected to be aged. They are completely ready to drink. Don't hesitate to dive in. 93 points.
