Taylor Fladgate Chip Dry White Porto

I adore Port wine, but sometimes hesitate to drink a glass because of its sweetness—delicious, but pulling no punches. This Chip Dry White Porto from Taylor Fladgate is the perfect choice when my palate needs something lighter but still craves a sweet treat. Port is made by adding brandy to the must in order to halt fermentation and preserve the natural sugar. This Chip Dry White is made by adding the brandy at a later point during fermentation, thus allowing more of the sugars to convert to alcohol. The result is a Port wine with 24 grams of sugar per liter, compared to the classic Ruby or Tawny which can clock in around 97-100 gr/l. Refreshing on the rocks or mixed in cocktails, too!

Tasting Notes

Pale, straw color. Delicate nose combining fresh fruit fragrances with the mellow aromas and hints of oak of a traditional white port. Fresh, lively palate, with good flavor and crisp, dry finish.

Food Match

Taylor Fladgate Chip Dry is traditionally served chilled as an aperitif. It can also be drunk – poured over ice in a glass, topped up with tonic and a leaf of fresh mint. Accompanied by salted almonds or olives, it is the perfect aperitif.
