For less than $16 per 750 ml bottle, Dow’s White Port is a steal! With caramel coloring and thinner legs than its Ruby and Tawny siblings, this White Port is very light and fruity; aroma and tannins are nearly absent.
Dow’s White Port is closer, in experience, to Ruby – – simple, friendly, and likeable. “Neutral” comes to mind as a descriptor. Dow’s White Port would likely accompany any appetizer, entrée, or dessert without fuss. Not all Ports can boast such versatility!
In terms relative to Dow’s Ruby and Tawny Ports, their White Port is a “kissing cousin,” i.e. nice to have around because it’s so comfortable, with no surprises or lingering familial drama. As an everyday Port with a 19% ABV, Dow’s White Port is very drinkable.
