Port Is More Than Just Dessert Wine

May 11, 2023

You might think port can only be served with dessert, but this fortified wine from Portugal is about more than its sweet, save-for-after-dinner reputation.

“During my trip to Porto last year, I fell in love with white Port – specifically Fonseca Siroco White Port,” says Chasity Cooper, writer, and wine culture expert. “I like it because it is sophisticated, crisp, and refreshing, yet has a delicate, sweet nuttiness that is approachable and fun. More than anything, I was captivated by its ability to pair with a variety of dishes.” Cooper says this port has crisp acidity, with notes of white peach, dehydrated Meyer lemon, grapefruit brulée, chopped almond, and hazelnut.
