The grapes are hand picked in September and are vinified by autovinifier. Fermentation is short (approx. 48 hours) at 30 degrees C for maximum extraction of colour and flavour. After roughly 48 hours, the wine is fortified by adding a pure clear grape spirit (1/5 spirit to 4/5 must), which artificially halts the fermentation. As all the sugar had not turned to alcohol, the wine remains sweet. CONTAINS SULPHITES.
The wine received its name, "port", in the latter half of the 17th century from the seaport city of Porto at the mouth of the Douro River, where much of the product was brought to market or for export to other countries in Europe. The Douro valley where port wine is produced was defined and established as a protected region, or appellation in 1756, making it the oldest defined and protected wine region in the world. Chianti (1716) and Tokaj (1730) have older demarcation but no regulation associated and thus, in terms of regulated demarcated regions, Porto is the oldest.
Port is produced in the sheer terraced vineyards of the Douro River valley, further inland towards the Spanish border from Porto. Temperature range from 35 degrees C in the summer to below 0 in the winter; the rainfall can fall to drought conditions in summer - harsh conditions that lead to excellent concentration of fruit and produces wines of great power. The inaccessibility of the area means the vineyards are still tended and harvested by hand.
Horizontally in a cool dark place. This port is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 2 years. Port will change character with prolonged storage and is best consumed soon after opening.
