Chip Dry of Taylor's Port from the Portuguese wine region Douro combines the grape varieties Malvasia, Rabigato, Esgana Cão, Viosinho and Gouveio.
In the glass, this port glows in a bright straw yellow with green-gold reflections. The seductive bouquet enchants the nose with present notes of nuts and dried fruit. On the palate, this port wine has a lively fruit - especially juicy peaches and ripe grapes - and a surprisingly fresh acidity. The fine residual sweetness perfectly highlights the finely nutty spiciness of the nose and the maturity of this Portuguese wine. This makes volume and abundance even more visible. In the long finale, this port is wonderfully dry and lively.
Vinification of Taylor's Port Chip DryThe
grapes in the Douro Valley are harvested manually for this port wine. Vinification is similar to a classic port, except that the yeast can work longer on this dry port than on a sweet port wine. As soon as the bulk of the sugar has been fermented, the high percentage distillate is added.
This port now rests in large barrels over the winter until it is shipped to the lodges of Vila Nova de Gaia in the spring. There this port wine matures for 4 to 5 years in large, old oak barrels.
