Description

Taste some delicious Port wines in this charming wine shop located in Belem district, not far from the famous Belem pastry bakery and Jeronimos Monastery.

We'll start our vertical wine tasting with a White Port Wine. White Ports differ from each other's in sweetness and ageing period. The youngest Ports are normally drunk in the beginning of meals. The oldest ones have longest ageing periods and intense flavors and should be drunk at dessert. According to sweetness level white Port has four categories: Extra Seco, Seco, Doce and Lagrima.

Our second wine will be a Ruby whose colour is the same as the precious stone of the same name. This happens because the ageing process has little or no oxidation, usually up to three years in wooden barrels. It is a young, full bodied wine rich in fruity aromas.

Try the Tawny Port wine obtained from blends of, usually, 3 year-old wines aged in wine seasoned casks. This way, they don't present the characteritsics of oak ageing. During the ageing process several rackings are performed in order to force oxidation and endow the wine with a golden colour.

LBV or Late Bottled Vintage Port is a good quality Port wine with good ageing potential. It has a harvest date - you will learn from your oenologist is bottled between the 31st July of the fourth year and the 31st December of the sixth year after harvest and it is usually obtained from a blend of wines from that harvest. Its ageing takes place in large vats, oak tuns or stainless steel tanks in order for the oxidative evolution to be extremely slow.

The last wines will be a 10 year old, 20 year old and 30 year old Port. They are tawny obtained from a blend of wines from several harvests in order to join different organoleptic characteristics such as colour, aroma and flavour. The ageing period in wood is variable and the age on the wine's label corresponds to the average age of the different wines used in the blend, a mixture of two or more grape varieties.

Delight yourself with some chocolates and chocolate truffles, the perfect combination with these wines.
