White Ports

White Ports are great as an aperitif or as a base for cocktails. They pair wonderfully with olives or toasted almonds.

These are made from classic white Douro grape varieties and are usually aged for a relatively short time in small oak vats. There are sweeter and drier styles, the latter being made by allowing the fermentation to continue a little longer before fortification.  

Fonseca is best known for its dry white Port, Siroco, which makes an excellent aperitif. However it also produces a classic white Port in a sweeter style which makes the perfect match for foie gras.
