Classic Port

Classic Port Wine Details

Description: A light port made in the traditional port method. This dessert wine is a blend of barrel aged port wines made from Chancellor, Chambourcin and Foch. This "northern grown port" exhibits strong fruit character and a lighter body that makes it perfect with sweet dessert foods such as chocolate or raspberry based confections and tortes, or with soft cheeses such as a fine brie. To capture and enjoy the intense fruit of this wine, serve at cool room temperature in a glass with a large globe and a narrow opening.
