The 4 Colors of Port Wine
The Port wine trade was dependent on the river to take the port wine from the producing area to the exporters' cellars located on the coast. The first references to boats with wine along the Douro River dated back to the year 1200. During most of the history of Port wine and until the mid-twentieth century, the boats that carried out this work were the notable Rabelo Boats.
The 4 Styles
The Port Wine produced with white grapes in the Douro region. This is a young port, aged at least 3 years in wooden vats. It has a straw yellow color.
Some Port wines are specially selected to age in oak barrels. The gradual exposure to the air concentrates the flavors and matures the colors, which pass from the ruby to the amber, while the aromas evolve to create complex and subtle flavors of nuts, vanilla and caramel.

They are wines to be consumed young, with good aromatic exuberance, with notes of cherry, raspberry and strawberry. In the mouth they are soft and pleasant. Should be enjoyed fresh or with ice, and can be served in cocktails.
As its name suggests, it is a red Port wine, red ruby intense. Full-bodied, rich and powerful, this wine is aged in large stainless or oak vats in order to maintain its original characteristics, reminiscent of red fruits such as cherries and strawberries.
