Dow’s Fine White is made primarily at our Quinta do Sol winery. Only traditional white grape varieties from the Douro valley are used. Dow’s Fine White was 100% fermented off the skins and using temperature control so that fermentation takes place between 18-22ºc. Aged for an average of three years it is bottled when ready to drink and requires no further ageing.

The white port is a golden colour with an intense, rich, nutty, aromatic complexity. A certain amount of wine is not wood-aged and is blended in to add freshness and fruit character. It is subtley sweet, smooth and well-balanced with excellent acidity and a delicious lingering quality.

One of the best ways to enjoy this white port is served over ice with a little tonic-water and slice of lemon--called a "Port-Tonic".
