Traditional white port varieties, mainly Viosinho, Gouveia, Rabigato and Malvasia Fina.The La Rosa style is to make well defined wines without too much extraction and tannin.A first class aperitif wine, a beautiful amber/honey colour, it shows excellent fruit on the palate, but at the same time has a long relatively dry finish.
This Port should be served slightly chilled and is also a good compliment to rich pates and fois gras. Good to drink cold as an aperitif or with a mixer. White Port and tonic is a particular favourite on the terrace at La Rosa in the summer whilst nibbling on some roasted almonds. Make it like a gin and tonic together with ice and a slice of lemon.
