Churchill's Dry White Port

Churchill's Dry White Port | The Douro Index | Scoop.it

Churchill's Dry White Port is an emblematic product for Churchill's and unique in its style. Its rich golden colour denotes its 10 years of age which is also evident in its smooth and complex taste. The alternative aperitif to be served cold at any time of year.

 

Sourcing
The grapes come from specially chosen old vineyards located at higher altitudes in the Douro, sub-region of Cima Corgo.
               
Grape Varieties
A field blend of many varieties including Malvasia Fina, Códega, Gouveio and Rabigato.
               

Tasting Notes

A vibrant golden colour with grated nutmeg and eucalyptus on the nose. On the palate it is fresh and complex with a long peppery finish.

Recommended Serving Temperature: Serve chilled (8º-10º). Decanting: No need to decant. Serve straight from the bottle.
