Natalie's Score: 87/100

I was surprised at this port mostly because I haven't tried many of the white variety. (I love tawny!) Makes a lovely after-dinner drink to sip on its own or with biscotti or fruit-based desserts.

White Port food pairings: Serve as an aperitif, over ice with Tonic and mint, or on its own.

PORTONIC RECIPE:
Ingredients
2 ounces white port
Dash of lime juice
Ice
2 ounces tonic water
1 slice of bitter melon or cucumber, plus 2 slices of seedless green grapes, skewered on a toothpick

Directions
Combine the port and lime juice in a wineglass with ice. Add the tonic. Garnish with the bitter melon or cucumber and grapes.

Tasting Notes:
Well balanced fragrant nose combining aromas of mellow fruit and delicate hints of honey and fine oak. Round and velvety on the palate with a long soft finish full of delicious ripe fruity flavours.
