Sweet & Fortified
Sweet wines is an enormous category in wine terms. Every country has an expression, whether it be through fortification, such as Vintage Port, or through fungal infection(Botrytis) like Sauternes. In reality some of the worlds finest wines are sweet wines, often the production techniques are financially prohibitive, which makes these wine makers true artisans.
Owned by the same family for over a decade, Quinta Do Infantado is a well known producer of Port. The 2013 vintage was affected by cool weather in April and May, this resulted in a low yield but of high quality. Notes of dark fruits here, with intense raisin and a hint of spice on the finish. This will be lovely served with a range of cheeses.
