Borges White Reserve Port
Sociedade dos Vinhos Borges was founded in 1884 by two brothers, Francisco and Antonio Borges. In 1998 Borges became a member of the JMV group, a group of Portuguese investors. It is now owned by a coffee producer and much of the vineyards and stock has been sold to the well-known port house Taylor's. Meanwhile, a new winemaker is at the helm, from Taylor's! With the arrival of the new winemaker, the Port's style is changing from a more traditional 'tawny' style, requiring long maturation to a richer, more 'ruby' fruit style.
The Borges White Port Reserve is a blend of Gouveio, Malvasia Fina, Rabigato, Viosinho and, as the name suggests, has had an aging in oak barrels. In the glass, this Poke is golden yellow with an intense aroma, hints of honey, resin and cedar, port with a lot of volume, a perfect balance between acidity and sweetness, with a hint of honey and hazelnut in the aftertaste.
Founded in 1884 by brothers António and Francisco, Sociedade dos Vinhos Borges quickly became one of the most important wine companies in Portugal, the result of a combination of tradition, age-old knowledge, dedication to the land and passion for wine. Conscious of the need to control the production process from the moment the vineyard is planted, Borges is present in the main regions defined by Portugal with four own and reference quintas: in Vinho Verde, Quinta de Simaens and Quinta do Ôro; in Douro, Quinta da Soalheira and in Dão, Quinta de São Simão da Aguieira.
