- Full and fruity on the palate this wine has a glorious lingering finish and an attractive, refreshing crispness
Enjoy Fonseca siroco white port the traditional way as an aperitif, ideally chill and serve in a white wine glass. Pour over ice in a high ball glass and top up with tonic water. Then garnish with a leaf of fresh mint or a slice of lemon. A very refreshing summer long drink. Accompany with salted almonds and some plump, juicy olives, it is the perfect aperitif.
But why stop there? Siroco brings an extra dimension of flavour to many dishes, for example when added as a finishing touch to a warm leek and potato soup or a cool summer gazpacho. Use it in place of white wine to provide an original aromatic accent when cooking clams or mussels.
A blend of classic white port grapes, predominantly Malvasia Fina with smaller proportions of Gouveio, Viosinho, Rabigato and Arinto. Which are grown on the cooler, higher vineyards of the Douro Valley.
To achieve its crisp dry finish, Fonseco allow the wine to ferment for longer than other styles of port before it is fortified. Ageing in small oak vats gives Siroco its smoothness as well as its attractive ripe fruit flavours and delicate nuttiness.
Siroco makes an elegant, stylish and versatile aperitif, equally at home before an alfresco meal on a warm summer day or on a cold winter evening in front of the fire.
