Tasting notes:

The Dalva 10yr Old Dry White port is a lovely dark amber colour.

The nose is a lovel blend of ripe tangerine and delicate almond notes.

The palate is a rich nutty experience, with refreshing acidity and a slight oxidative character. This is a medium dry port, with a lingering refreshing tanginess.

This port is perfect when served slightly chilled, preferably as an aperitif. 

About the port:

The Dalva 10yr Old Dry White port is made from a blend of a number of white grape varietals. 

After harvesting and fermentation, neutral grape spirit is added to the wine. This halts fermentation, increases the alcohol content and leaves a small amount of residual sugar, hence the medium dry character.

The port is then aged for 10 years in oak barrels, maturing and taking on the oxidized characteristics and lovely amber colour. 

The Dalva 10yr old Dry White port is a blend of different vintages of 10yr old White Port (Colheita's).

About the producer:

The company was established in the Douro in 1862 by the Portuguese family, Correa Ribeiro. The name was then changed in 1957 to the now C. da Silva when Mr Clemente da Silva received the company through marriage.

The company is dedicated to perfecting the art of production of  the finest port, through careful selection of the best wines in each vintage. 

During the ageing process, careful monitoring of quality takes place by highly skilled winemakers in modern, technologically advanced laboratories.
