Description

The Quinta Da Devesa 10 Year Old White Port is a notable offering in the world of fortified wines, particularly because white ports are less common compared to their red counterparts. This 10-year-old port has been aged in oak casks, which contributes to its complexity and depth of flavor. The aging process allows it to develop the rich, nuanced profile characteristic of quality white ports.

Tasting Notes:
Clear golden colour. Intense aroma of honeysuckle, orange blossom, and caramelized pineapple notes. The palate is intense, with poached pears and tropical notes on. Very long, smooth finish with honey, caramel, and citrus.

Serving & Food Pairing:
White Ports are ready to drink and do not require decanting. Best enjoyed chilled at 12-13ºC on its own as an aperitif, or paired with rich starters such as mushroom risotto. With a freshness beyond age, White Port is also ideal with crème brulee or a spicy apple crumble.

A historic vineyard, Quinta da Devesa was already included as a quality grape growing plot in the first map of the Douro Demarcated Region. The most important history of the property began in 1941 when Jose Fortunato Junior and his wife, Antonia Soares Fortunato acquired Quinta da Devesa and decided to pour their lifetime passion for port wine into the property through great investment in port and, later, dry wine production. Over seventy years later, harvests of superior quality have been kept and stored in wooden casks in the winery cellars. These are used today to produce the famed tawny and aged white port blends alongside some exceptional colheita ports dating back to 1944.

How to store your White Port:
The bottle should be kept upright and protected from direct sunlight and heat.

Reviews

***90 Points - Mark Squires (eRobert Parker)***
The NV 10 Years White Port was bottled in 2020 with 114 grams of residual sugar and a bar-top cork. Not showing anywhere near as sweet as the residual sugar statistics would suggest, this does still seem very rich. It is not a style that is as bright and lively as some, but there is more intensity of flavor than most. It has bitter chocolate and caramel nuances, sometimes seeming more Tawny-like. It adds some grip on the finish. July 2020 (Mark Squires)

***90 Points - Roger Voss Wine Enthusiast Magazine ***
This young style of white Port shows a good mix of wood-aging and fruit flavours. It has a seductive gold colour, leading into rich sultana and white-fig flavours. The wine is ready to drink.
