Fonseca White Port is a blend of wines produced from white grapes grown mainly on the Upper slopes of the Douro Valley. The grapes used include the Arinto, Malvasia Fina, Codega, Esgana Cão, Folgasão, Gouveio, Viosinho and Rabigato varieties.
The individual wines are aged in oak vats for about three years, where they acquire mellowness and character. They are blended to produce a rich white port in the traditional smooth, full-bodied style.
Fonseca White Port is ready to drink immediately and does not need to be decanted. It should be served chilled. It is a versatile port which may be served either as an aperitif or as a sweet dessert wine.
