Very Old White Port


Very Old White Port

This port wine is a very special wine produced by our family decades ago with white grapes from our old vineyards in Celeiros. It has aged in small toneis of 5.000L for more than 40 years, reaching the high of its quality. It is a fantastic example of aged white port.

A very elegant and strong white Port wine with a high aromatic complexity originated from oxidative handling and a good extract from prolonged skin maceration. It’s elaborated with only one lot of old White Port of great quality. Looking at its color you see green areola around it, it is a great demonstration of its old age.
