Fonseca Siroco

The Fonseca Siroco is a dry white port wine which was launched in the 1950s This wine is named after the hot wind coming from North Africa and that blows over the Mediterranean. In most countries, the Port wines are drunk at the end of the meal. The exception is the white port wine, especially the drier styles, which are a great appetizer. The Fonseca Siroco is drawn from the classic white grapes for port wine, mainly Malvasia Fina, with smaller proportions of Gouveio, Viosinho, Rabigato and Arinto, grown in the cooler and high vineyards in the Douro Valley. To get your dry and crispy end, the wine is fermented longer than other styles of port wine before it is fortified. Aging in smaller wooden vats gives the Siroco its softness, as well as their attractive flavors of ripe fruit and its delicate notes of dried fruit. The Siroco gives an elegant and versatile appetizer, on an outdoor meal on a hot summer day, as the front of the fireplace on a winter night.

TASTING NOTES:
Pale, straw colour. A superb balance of ripe fruit, delicate acidity and elegant notes of wood aging. Full and fruity on the palate this wine has a glorious lingering finish and na attractive, refreshing crispness.
- Winemaker: David Guimaraens
- Winemaking: In most countries, Ports is traditionally enjoyed at the end of the meal. The exception is white Port, especially the drier style which makes an excellent aperitif. It is a blend of classic white Port grape varieties, predominantly Malvasia Fina with smaller proportions of Gouveio, Viosinho, Rabigato and Arinto, grown on the cooler, higher vineyards of the Douro Valley. To achieve its crisp dry finish, the wine is allowed to ferment for longer than other styles of Port before it is fortified. Ageing in small oak vats gives Siroco its smoothness as well as its attractive ripe fruit flavours and delicate nuttiness. Siroco makes an elegant, stylish and versatile aperitif, equally at home before an alfresco meal on a warm summer day or on a cold winter evening in front of the fire.
- Grape Varieties: Malvasia Fina, Gouveio, Viosinho, Rabigato, Arinto.
- Food Pairing: Fonseca Siroco is traditionally enjoyed as an aperitif, served chilled in a white wine glass. It can also be poured over ice in a high ball glass and topped up with tonic water and a leaf of fresh mint or a slice of lemon as a refreshing summer long drink. Accompanied by salted almonds and some plump, juicy olives, it is the perfect aperitif. But why stop there? Siroco brings an extra dimension of flavour to many dishes, for example when added as a finishing touch to a warm leek and potato soup or a cool summer gazpacho. Use it in place of white wine to provide an original aromatic accent when cooking clams or mussels.
- Store and Serve Advices: Fonseca Siroco is ready to drink immediately and does not need to be decanted. It should be served at room temperature or slightly cooler.
