From a blend of native white grapes, this aged Porto Branco is something quite special.
With the best white grapes from the oldest vines on the Leite family estate, this is initially aged for 3 years in 225 litre French oak barriques before being transferred to larger oak barrels to mature a further 11 years.
Honeyed gold and slightly cloudy in appearance, the flavour profile is of dried fruits, nuts and spices—dried apricots, figs, almonds, hazelnuts, vanilla, butterscotch, orange peel, caramel and honey all distinguishable. Thick and unctuous, the flavours continue to develop and linger for some minutes after tasting, really fabulous.
Goes very well with a range of not-too-sweet desserts, serve slightly chilled in the summer and at room temperature in the winter.
