Taylor Fladgate's Fine White Port is a blend of wines produced from white grapes grown mainly on the Upper slopes of the Douro Valley. The grapes used include the Arinto, Boal (Semillon), Codega, Esgana Cão, Folgasão, Gouveio, Viosinho and Rabigato varieties.
The individual wines are aged in oak vats for about three years, where they acquire mellowness and character. They are blended to produce a rich white port in the traditional smooth, full-bodied style.
Rich, fragrant nose with aromas of mellow fruit and hints of honey and oak. Full body; velvety palate and long flavoursome finish.

Taylor Fladgate pioneered dry white aperitif port more than 60 years ago under the Chip Dry label, first blended in 1934. The Special White Port is a much sweeter version. You can drink in the traditional way, chilled in the classic port wine glass on its own, or with a twist of lemon, accompanied by roasted almonds, olives or dry biscuits. There’s a floral anise flavour with just a touch of oak and caramel in the finish. A fun and decidedly different drink.
