Port

Only fortified wine produced in the Douro Valley of Portugal may call itself Port. That said, in South Africa we produce delicious varieties of this fortified drink – just without the name! There are a number of different styles of port: Ruby port is redder and lighter in colour, an easy-drinking tipple with raisin and fruitcake flavours; Tawny port has a golden brown colour and is nuttier, with caramel and toffee flavours; Vintage port is ideal for ageing, with its darker, spicier flavours and heavier tannins; and White port is rarer, with fruitier flavours and is best served chilled as an aperitif or in a cocktail.
