Origin: Valle del Duero - Portugal

Fonseca Siroco is a dry white Port, first introduced in the 1950s. It is named after the warm wind that blows over the Mediterranean from North Africa. An excellent balance of ripe fruits, with a delicate acidity and elegant notes of aging in wood. In the mouth it is dry. You could even remember a sherry, although the grapes with which it was made and its origin give it a very different style. Perfect to enjoy alone, cold or to make cocktails. 

Grape Variety: Malvasia Fina with smaller proportions of Gouveio, Viosinho, Rabigato and Arinto, grown on the cooler, higher vineyards of the Douro Valley.

Aging:  

To achieve its crisp dry finish, the wine is allowed to ferment for longer than other styles of Port before it is fortified. Ageing in small oak vats gives Siroco its smoothness as well as its attractive ripe fruit flavours and delicate nuttiness.

Region: Valle del Duero, Portugal

Food pairing: 

Pale, straw colour. A superb balance of ripe fruit, delicate acidity and elegant notes of wood aging. Full and fruity on the palate this wine has a glorious lingering finish and an attractive, refreshing crispness.  Recommended temperature: 16°C (60°F). 

Wine Profile:

Fonseca Siroco is traditionally enjoyed as an aperitif, served chilled in a white wine glass. It can also be poured over ice in a high ball glass and topped up with tonic water and a leaf of fresh mint or a slice of lemon as a refreshing summer long drink. Accompanied by salted almonds and some plump, juicy olives, it is the perfect aperitif.

Siroco brings an extra dimension of flavour to many dishes, for example when added as a finishing touch to a warm leek and potato soup or a cool summer gazpacho. Use it in place of white wine to provide an original aromatic accent when cooking clams or mussels.
