Port & Nibbles
Vintage Port is rightly thought of as something to have after dinner but the other ports also
make fantastic aperitif wines and some port can even be served chilled or mixed in a cocktail.
White Port served chilled on its own is similar to a fine chardonnay and ideal for sipping before dinner
with some nibbles. I recently tried this in Oporto with some roasted and salted almonds and the combination was
excellent. Olives, seafood and other salty nibbles might be good combinations too.
Another candidate for serving before dinner is tawny port, served chilled on its own. The chilling makes the port
light enough to match with any kind of canape.
