ruby port & tawny port

ruby port & tawny port

we were introduced to white port, ruby port & tawny port.

port are wine produced from red grapes grown in the duoro valley & fortified by addition of garpe neutral spirit (brandy) to stop fermentation, & so sweeter. tawny port has prolonged slow oxidation in wooden casks. it turns amber brown colour & is smoother, nutty & taste like brandy.

We had 2 ruby port €6 each & a tawny port €9

We picked 2 ruby port €6 each & a tawny port €9

we picked 3 port – 2 ruby port €6 each & a tawny port €9.

& a platter comprising 3 proscuitto, 4 cheese, 3 chorizo to share among 4pax. 🙂

olives & bread

the bread as always were very good.

extra virgin olive oil & compote

extra virgin olive oil & compote

very good extra virgin olive oil.

& with the cheese & chorizo we also had very good fruit jam & compote.

3 chorizos & cheese...3 port, 3 proscuitto, 4 cheese, 3 chorizo(2)

3 proscuitto, 4 cheese, 3 chorizo

the platter was really something.

3 very good quality 24mths & 36mths proscuitto (or aged ham) including alentejan black pig, 3 different chorizo & 4 cheese.

proscuitto & chorizo were so flavourful. i enjoyed all of them & the cheese. they were especially good when taken together with the port, though i can’t take much wine or liquor.

this was the best wine & cheese experience i had. service was excellent, with very good introduction & explanation of the port, proscuitto, chorizo & cheese.
