The Fine Selected White, medium amber, has a bouquet of dried peach, nutty notes and a hint of toffee. The flavors of dried peach and pear with a nutty vanilla are rich, with balanced sweetness and a long woodsy finish.
The grapes used in the production of Warre's Fine White are a blend of traditional Portuguese varieties from the Douro Valley, such as Arinto, Códega, Malvasia Fina, Rabigato, and Viosinho. Pale straw colour, smooth and delicate nose, fruity palate with a long and crisp finish. Makes an excellent aperitif when served chilled or as a long drink with tonic water and a slice of lemon.
Warre's, founded in 1670, was the first British Port company established in Portugal and therefore the pioneer of a great tradition; its history is synonymous with that of Port itself.William Warre, from the Oporto family of Port producers, fought with the Anglo-Portuguese army led by the Duke of Wellington, at nearly every major battle in the Peninsular war (1807-1814).
These battles re-established Portugals independence. Warres Warrior Reserve Port is the first and oldest Port brand in the world, having been shipped continuously since 1750.The Symington Family is descended from Andrew James Symington and Beatrice Atkinson who were married in Oporto in 1891. Andrew James arrived as a young man from Scotland in 1882 and was admitted to partnership in the firm of Warre & Co. in 1905.Currently six members of the Symington family (five from the 13th generation in the Port trade) are actively involved in Warres day to day management, with the dedication and long-term commitment that are unique to a family-run business. From the vineyards through the winemaking, ageing and blending, a member of the family is directly responsible for every bottle of Warres Port produced. The familys commitment to its wines is stronger than ever after 350 years, an unparalleled tradition in the Port trade.
