C. Da Silva, Dalva Golden, White, Port, Portugal, 1971
Dalva Golden, White
Regional Trophy: White Port over £15
50% Malvasia, 10% Verdelho, 10% Rabigato
Spicy, creamy, nutty, honeyed aromas of oxidative ageing frame the nose, along with a touch of fruitcake and smoke. The mellifluous palate is rich and full, with candied citrus, layers of sweet marmalade, grapey notes and bracing acidity. Unlike any white Port you might normally encounter but a delicious and complete wine.
