Old gold color. Aromas and flavors of apricot, shallot jam, coriander, and hints of banana with a satiny, crisp, off-dry light-to-medium body and a sleek, fast finish that presents touches of persimmon. A light, aperitif-style White Port that could be delightful served on ice, topped with seltzer and garnished with fresh fruit.

Domestic Port-Style Wine

Serve in a Port Wine Glass
Domestic Port-Style Wines are those made in the style of Portuguese Ports wines but grown and vinified in the United States. Wines made in this style are typically fortified with brandy or distilled grape spirits which causes fermentation to stop and also increases alcohol. Flavors are typically sweetfruity, nutty, and have a stronger alcohol presence than standard table wines. The best examples are highly comparable to true Ports.
