Cockburn's White Heights Port
The story goes, that two British merchants travelling through Portugal’s Douro Valley in the seventeenth century came across the monks at a monastery near Lamego drinking a local wine with grape spirit added to it early in its fermentation so that the wine kept its natural sweetness. They decided to start shipping this wine back to Britain. The fortifying spirit helped to preserve the wine on its long sea voyage as well as giving it a unique sweet taste.
Fresh tropical fruit flavours such as papaya and pineapple lead the way, supported by light aromas of honeysuckle. Crisp yellow plum and pear notes finish with a touch of vanilla. They also say this is an absolute winner in a Port & Tonic.
