BEAUMONT Cape White
Way back in 2013 we had a young guy call Alvaro Roseira from the Douro valley in Portugal helping us for the vintage. Alvaro was one of those remarkable characters who was always enthusiastic about life on all levels. As I was about to chuck away the experimental skin ferment Chenin blanc that I wasn’t so happy with. He stopped me and said lets fortify it and make a white port. I knew nothing really of this style of port but hey our cellar used to produce it back in the 40’s. So why not now. We fortified it and matured it and then much later bottled this one barrel of Magic!

Food pairing | A few different ways. As an aperitif mixed with tonic and a peel of lemon or orange. Neat on its own slightly chilled. Or have it with some lovely cheeses at the end of a meal. Especially Queso de Serra if you can find one in Portugal.
