Ramos Pinto Adriano White Reserva Port is a superb white Port. White Port is pretty much made in exactly the same way as a normal red Port except that it is made using only white grapes.
Ramos Pinto was founded in 1880 by brothers Antonio and Adriano and has always had a pioneering spirit. In the early 20th century it became noted for its innovative and enterprising commercial strategies including the distinctive art nouveau advertising campaign. Ramos Pinto is run today by the heirs of these two energetic vintners: Jorge Rosas, Export Director and João Nicolau de Almeida, the oenologist who was responsible for officially identifying the five key grape varieties. In 1990 Ramos Pinto became part of the Champagne Louis Roederer group, which shares a similar family owned history and has since enjoyed significant investment and further improvements in quality.
Ramos Pinto Adriano White Reserva Port is made from a blend of white grapes (Codega, Malvasia Fina, Viozinho and Rabigato) from the Douro. Only the finest white grapes are hand-picked and the vinification technique is traditional with partial skin maceration. The wine is fortified and then aged in oak barrels for seven years in Ramos Pinto’s cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia. Thanks to the extended skin contact and wood aging, Adriano Ramos-Pinto’s white ports are richer and more complex than most other white Ports.
