Wine Review: This pale peach colored Port opens with a mild ripe apricot bouquet with a hint of honey and raisin. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced and creamy. The flavor profile is a walnut and golden raisin blend with notes of gentle tangerine and fig. The finish is rather dry and very extended. This Port does show a little bit of its 19.5% alcohol. I would pair it with amaretto (almond flavored) macaroon cookies. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: All our ports are made in the ‘house style’ namely slightly drier without any cloying sweetness that can be associated with some other ports. We also work hard making sure the brandy is well integrated. Our white port is a first-class aperitif wine, a beautiful amber/honey color, it shows excellent fruit on the palate, but at the same time has a long relatively dry finish. This Port should be served slightly chilled and is also a good compliment to rich pates and fois gras.
