Cuvée presentation

Dow's has produced a port made by a delicate, painstaking process. Its intense colour, sweetness and powerfully fruity, complex notes are attributable to factors such as its élevage in wood. Try combining it with dishes that usually defy pairing, such as grilled sardines or onion soup. The sweet-toothed will be sure to enjoy it with a chocolate cake!
