White Porto

Gilberts Extra Dry White Porto

Gilberts Extra Dry White Porto, DOC Douro

I've never drank a white port before. Great. In a 50 cL bottle.

Light colour, which is a bit of a surprise. I find the nose indescribable, for once. Sort of a smoky, rich, bacon fat, and candied citrus. Interesting. This is very luscious on the palate, with great roundness. Alcohol is a bit searing. Much sweeter than I expected.

An interesting wine that I'd like to revisit in the summer, maybe as a long drink.
