Fonseca Siroco Dry White Port 75CL
FONSECA SIROCO WHITE PORT
In most countries, Ports arrive at the end of the meal. The exception is white Port, especially the drier style which makes an excellent aperitif. So, what can we say about the Fonseca Siroco White Port?
It is a blend of classic white Port grape varieties, predominantly Malvasia Fina with smaller proportions of Gouveio, Viosinho, Rabigato and Arinto, grown on the cooler, higher vineyards of the Douro Valley.
To achieve its crisp dry finish, the wine ferments for longer than other styles of Port before it is fortified.
Ageing in small oak vats gives Siroco its smoothness as well as its attractive ripe fruit flavours and delicate nuttiness.
Siroco makes an elegant, stylish and versatile aperitif, equally at home before an alfresco meal on a warm summer day or on a cold winter evening in front of the fire.
Pale, straw colour. A superb balance of ripe fruit, delicate acidity and elegant notes of wood aging. Full and fruity on the palate this wine has a glorious lingering finish and an attractive, refreshing crispness.
FONSECA SIROCO WHITE PORT: FOOD MATCHINGS
Fonseca Siroco White Port is a superb aperitif when served chilled in a white wine glass.
Why not try it also over ice in a high ball glass and topped up with tonic water and a leaf of fresh mint or a slice of lemon as a refreshing summer long drink.
With salted almonds and some plump, juicy olives, it is the perfect aperitif.
But why stop there?
Siroco brings an extra dimension of flavour to many dishes, for example try it as a finishing touch to a warm leek and potato soup or a cool summer gazpacho.
Use it in place of white wine to provide an original aromatic accent when cooking clams or mussels.
