Andresen White Porto


SKU 04170



This great Port house in Portugal was founded in 1845 by Jann Hinrich Andresen, at the age of 19, a young man who arrived from Denmark at a mere 14 years old. He founded Andresen as a traditional Port house that specializes in premium refined Port wines, which it remains to this day . More than 160 years since its beginnings, Andresen remains proudly independent, and is one of the few 100% family-owned Port Houses in Portugal.  Andresen Ports are vinified at Quinta das Aranhas, near the Tua River, in the heart of the Douro region. The 40 hectares of A-rated vineyards assure the excellence of the most premium Ports of the Andresen range.  Andresen produces Colheita Ports, aged Tawny and white Ports. This value-priced white port is made of indigenous grapes : Códega, Rabigato, Malvasia Fina and Fernão Pires.

Wine EnthusiastThis small, independent producer has made a rich, unctuous, mouth-filling wine, with intense fruit and honey flavors, only just hinting at the spirit. A big, ripe wine, intensely flavored.
