Product Description

  • Port - Fortified Wine
  • Cockburn's Fine White is an excellent aperitif. Perfect served chilled or long over ice and lemon with tonic.
  • White Ports come in a range of styles from very sweet to very dry. We believe that Cockburn's Fine White has the best of both worlds. It has the natural sugars of ripe grapes as well as the dryness of a slightly longer fermentation. The result: a slightly drier, easy-.going, easy to drink White Port perfect for a summer's afternoon.
  • Cockburn's, one of the greatest names in Port, led the development of vineyards in Portugal's Upper Douro valley in the 19th and 20th centuries. The company is owned by the Symington Family, Port producers for over 125 years.

Robert Cockburn, in outlining his philosophy so long ago would completely capture what is still our essence and objective two centuries later. "The quality of the wine - that is the first thing to be looked to."

Vinification Details

  • White Port ranges in style from intensely sweet through sweet, semi-dry, dry and extra-dry. Most White Ports are stored in stainless steel for up to 18 months to accentuate their freshness, but wood-aged versions can turn a golden colour and take on a faintly nutty dimension.

History

  • Cockburn's was founded in 1815 by Robert Cockburn, a soldier who served in Portugal during the Peninsular War. Robert was later joined in his Port business by his sons Archibald and Alexander. In 2010, Cockburn's celebrated its 195th birthday by returning to family ownership. It joined Symington Family Estates, Port producers for over 125 years, the largest vineyard owners in the Douro (940 hectares/2,330 acres) who account for 30% of all Premium Port production.

Regional Information

  • For nearly 100 years, the wine from the magnificent Quinta dos Canais vineyard has formed the backbone of Cockburn's Vintages. This jewel of the Upper Douro Valley has 261 hectares (645 acres) and its vineyard is comprised of 27% Touriga Franca and 30,5% Touriga Nacional. Cockburn's is famous for having played a leading role in the recovery of the Touriga Nacional grape variety in the 1970's.
