As a change to the Pimms or the Gin and Tonic bring on the White Port!
Refreshing indeed; especially on a sultry English summers evening. One glass is not enough.
White port, in this instance less white more caramel in colour, is a favourite tipple in Portugal. Recommended as an aperitif cocktail, with creamy cheese and is apparently “fantastic with creamy, fruity or nutty desserts”. I haven’t actually got further than the cocktail and the way they are slipping down it is unlikely much will remain to experiment with a full, unsullied glass of Caldas and anything dessert like.

Sadly that is about all I can tell you about Caldas White Port. The company website is totally rubbish, revealing nothing – no details what-so-ever (no grape varieties, no specific vineyards, no mood-inducing photos of the family sipping white port while overlooking the Douro as the sun casts its golden hued evening rays over the vines…). Lovely flash-based intro however…
