“White port isn't in everyone's fridge and is one of those secrets that you'll want to know about. Great cold by itself and incredible over ice, with lemon juice and topped up with tonic. A sure way to be the one left standing when everyone's on the gin! This is an off-dry style that has flavours and smells of nashi pears, lemons, pineapples and clementines. We love this so much and it's time to share, thank us later!”

what producer says
Once the grapes are picked our aim throughout is to preserve the aromatics and fresh flavours by gentle handling, and by keeping the fruit and juice as cool as possible. Picked early in the morning the grapes are whole bunch pressed and drained without any skin contact. Fermented with wild yeasts at 15ºC so that the wine maintains primary fruit aromas and flavours, and spirit is then added at the appropriate time to stop the fermentation. The wine is then matured sur-lie in stainless steel tanks, before blending and bottling. Throughout the process minimal handling and attention to detail, ensure that the delicate aromatics are not compromised. The unique character of this white port is derived from utilising some of the best grapes on the estate to make the core of the blend from the current vintage combined with a splash of older material to provide balance and extra character.

    Meet the producer

    The whole ethos of Quinta da Pedra Alta is based on a group of close friends that wish to grow, across the world… It has been a long journey from Essex in the UK to the Douro Valley in Portugal via the Barossa Valley in Australia, but the result is a long-held dream come true for us. Our love of wine and nature has grown over the years, and it became our dream to own a special vineyard. Luckily enough, one of us, Matt Gant, is a winemaker (working in Australia), who has visited Portugal several...
