5 White Wine Styles to Welcome Spring

White Port

While most of us are familiar with traditional port based on red-wine grapes, Portugal’s white port gives voice to such fun and funky white wine grapes of the region as malvasia fina, verdelho, códega, gouveio, and rabigato — varieties often harvested together as a field blend. White port is full-bodied with alcohol levels in the same zone as those of traditional ports, around 20 percent. The wines can be crafted in a range of styles, from bone-dry to sweet, and show characteristic nutty nuances, with dried fruit concentration along with citrus-infused aromas laced with honey.
