By fun Ports we mean less formal, more versatile and flexible Ports. Those that can be drunk on their own or that can easily be used in cocktails or simply served on the rocks.
White Ports is a floral and smooth Port that goes down very easily. It is made exclusively from white grapes, the traditional from the Douro and is bottled when it has two or three years old.
Under the Fun Ports we include the Rose Port as well. Our beautiful Rose Port is made exclusively with ted grapes, fermented at cool temperature to preserve the delicate fresh fruit flavours that we obtain from the very short contact of the juice with the skin of the grape. It is very smooth, and terribly easy to drink. If you are not too conservative about Port you may really like it.
Serving suggestions: serve Fun Ports slightly chilled, on their own, on the rocks, or if you are up to something more creative try to make a cocktail. Here is one that we made recently.
