Quevedo White Port

Light, fresh, easy

Made with white grapes and pro¬≠duced exclu¬≠sive¬≠ly in the Duoro Val¬≠ley of North¬≠ern Por¬≠tu¬≠gal, the Queve¬≠do White Port is a sweet and flo¬≠ral wine that goes down easy and smooth.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

A stun¬≠ning Por¬≠tu¬≠gal wine made with com¬≠plete¬≠ly destemmed and crushed white grapes tra¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠al to Duoro. 

With a pale amber col¬≠or and a fresh fruity fla¬≠vor, this drink is a unique expe¬≠ri¬≠ence. It has a crisp, slight¬≠ly spicy aro¬≠ma, rem¬≠i¬≠nis¬≠cent of tree fruits and cloves. It gives off notes of apple, pear, and apri¬≠cot on the palate, with sub¬≠tle earthy under¬≠tones of hon¬≠ey and ginger. 

Very fresh and light, and easy to drink, with a refresh¬≠ing bal¬≠ance of acid¬≠i¬≠ty and sweetness.

PAIR­INGS

Enjoy this chilled as an ap√©ri¬≠tif, and set the tone for a won¬≠der¬≠ful meal. It also pairs won¬≠der¬≠ful¬≠ly with Gruy√®re and some olives. The sweet¬≠ness of this port wine shines bril¬≠liant¬≠ly along¬≠side a smoked salmon dish, an olive oil-based seafood pas¬≠ta, or a plate of fresh sushi. 

The Queve¬≠do White Port is excep¬≠tion¬≠al with dessert, too. Pair its spicy under¬≠tones with apple or cof¬≠fee cake, or go a lighter route with lemon meringue, or peach¬≠es and cream. Alter¬≠na¬≠tive¬≠ly, enjoy this as a cock¬≠tail. Dress it up with equal parts port and ton¬≠ic, and gar¬≠nish with mint or a slice of lemon (or both), and you have your¬≠self a deli¬≠cious, refresh¬≠ing mixed drink.

A DUORO TRADITION

Port wine, named after the city of Por¬≠to, is exclu¬≠sive¬≠ly made in the Duoro Val¬≠ley. It is a for¬≠ti¬≠fied wine, mean¬≠ing a 77% alco¬≠hol is added halfway through fer¬≠men¬≠ta¬≠tion, stop¬≠ping it, and pre¬≠serv¬≠ing part of the grapes‚Äô sugar. 

Grown in ter¬≠races and with lim¬≠it¬≠ed use of machin¬≠ery, the dense vine¬≠yards of Duoro lend diver¬≠si¬≠ty and com¬≠plex¬≠i¬≠ty to the cre¬≠ation of its wines. Har¬≠vest sea¬≠son is from Sep¬≠tem¬≠ber to Octo¬≠ber, when the grape reach¬≠es 13 to 15% alco¬≠hol. This is the time that also yields small¬≠er fruit, with a high¬≠er ratio of skin to juice, ensur¬≠ing more con¬≠cen¬≠trat¬≠ed and com¬≠plex wines.
