Dessert Wine (Fortified)
Fortified wines from Portugal are a type of wine that has had a distilled spirit, such as brandy, added to it, resulting in a higher alcohol content. Portugal is known for producing some of the world's finest fortified wines, and these wines are an integral part of the country's winemaking tradition.
The most famous fortified wine from Portugal is Port, which is made from grapes grown in the Douro Valley. Port is a sweet, full-bodied wine that is often enjoyed after dinner as a dessert wine. The wine is made by adding brandy to the fermented grape juice, stopping the fermentation process and leaving residual sugar in the wine. There are several different types of Port wine, including Ruby Port, Tawny Port, and Vintage Port, each with its own unique flavor profile.
Another well-known fortified wine from Portugal is Madeira, which is made on the island of Madeira. Madeira is a fortified wine that is known for its rich, nutty flavor and high alcohol content. The wine is made by heating the fermented grape juice, which gives it its unique flavor profile. Like Port, there are several different styles of Madeira, including Sercial, Verdelho, Bual, and Malmsey, each with its own distinct flavor profile.
In addition to Port and Madeira, Portugal also produces other fortified wines such as Moscatel de Setúbal and Moscatel Roxo. These wines are made from the Moscatel grape variety and are known for their sweet, raisin-like flavor profile.
