Calem Fine White Port

Calem Porto Fine White has developed a golden color. Start soft with a fresh finish. In the aftertaste notes of dried fruit.

The grapes ferment briefly after which 'Aquardente' is added. Literally this means 'fire water'. This neutral alcohol does not affect the taste, but ensures that the fermentation stops. The yeast cells die by adding the alcohol. The moment of addition determines the taste of the port. Because the fermentation stops, sugar remains, so port is often sweet and has 20% alcohol.

Wine - Food pairing

As a perfectly chilled aperitif, as a “Portonic” long drink (with tonic, ice and lemon) or as an accompaniment to light desserts.

Calem Fine White Port

Calem Fine White Port is a delicious Portuguese white port from the Douro region in Portugal. This wine is made from different grape varieties: Viosinho, Malvasia Fina, Verdelho and Rabigato.

António Alves Cálem

Some of his contemporaries may have mistaken António Alves Cálem for an incurable adventurer, but it was entrepreneurship that fuelled his passion. When he founded Porto Cálem in 1859, he set his sights on crossing the Atlantic and exporting to Brazil. This at a time when Port was typically shipped to the British Isles and other European markets. Beaten paths were not for Cálem. Once he eventually set route to Brazil, his first transactions were done in exotic woods. Again, this could have easily been misjudged as a bold decision when, in fact, it was a pondered risk that forwarded a very successful business relationship.

The Douro, the oldest demarcated region in the world, grew the grapes. The cellars of Gaia aged the wine. And António Alves Cálem planned the enterprise. Dauntless, he prepared for an adventure that is still ongoing four generations later.
