Port Wine DOW’S Fine White 75cl
Dow’s is owned and managed by the fourth generation of the Symington family, Port
producers since the 19th Century. The family, whose experience dates back over 100 years, supervises all the vineyards, winemaking and ageing of this wine.
Dow’s owns two of the Douro?s finest Quintas, Senhora da Ribeira and Bomfim. They were acquired in 1890 and 1896, making Dow?s one of the first houses to invest in premium vineyards.
Dow’s Fine White is made primarily at our Quinta do Sol winery. Only traditional white
grape varieties from the Douro valley are used.
Dow’s Fine White was 100% fermented off the skins and using temperature control so that fermentation takes place between 18-22ºc. Aged for an average of three years it is bottled when ready to drink and requires no further
Dow’s Fine White ages mainly in wood, gaining a rich golden colour and an intense rich nutty aromatic complexity. A certain amount of wine is not woodaged and is blended in to add freshness and fruit character. On the palate, balanced and smooth, with excellent acidity and a long finish. Food pairing suggestions and serving
Serve chilled to enhance the crisp fruit flavours. Equally delicious served as an aperitif or with light desserts.
