Description and Reviews:
Messias 10 year old white Port is a golden dry white wine with a fine aroma of wood with notes of vanilla and spices, some hints of nutmeg. The palate confirms all the aromas, it leaves a good acidity combined with a long finish. It's full of flavour, very rich, concentrated and has a smooth but long finish.
A fairly rare style of port, the 10 years old white is characterised by skin contact and oxidative maturation. It is golden in colour, with good acidity, concentration and wood from the long ageing all come together to give a Port that is dry while very rich, with just a hint of orange marmalade flavour.
It is made in the same way as aged tawnies, with slow aging in pipes in the Messias lodges. The white grapes undergo a long period of skin maceration and are foot trodden. Following the addition of grape brandy, the White Port spends a year in large oak vats, followed by ageing in traditional oak pipes for a period of between 7 and 15 years.
