1. Variety and Richness of Flavor

One of the principal reasons why fortified wines are a perfect aperitif is the remarkable variety and richness of flavors they offer. From the sumptuous Port and Sherry to the delightful Marsala and Madeira, there’s a fortified wine to complement every palate. For instance, if you fancy something sweet and rich, a glass of port or cream sherry might be your ideal choice. Alternatively, if you prefer something dry and savory, a Fino Sherry or a Sercial Madeira could be perfect. At VinoVoss, we offer a spectacular range of fortified wines that are meticulously selected to meet the highest standards of quality and taste.

2. Superior Quality

Fortification process improves the durability and stability of wines, making them resistant to spoilage and allowing for extended aging periods. This results in a high-quality beverage that can be enjoyed for years, if not over a century!

An example of such a wine from our collection would be the Quinta do Noval 40 Year Old Tawny Port. Its luscious texture and array of flavors have only been exaggerated by its long aging process, making it a bottle worth every sip.

3. Versatility

Fortified wines aren’t just limited to being aperitifs; they can be served with main courses or desserts too. For instance, Port wine, with its rich, fruity flavors, can pair remarkably well with creamy cheese and chocolate brownies. Meanwhile, Cream Sherry can make an excellent companion for a creme brulee or a Tarte Tatin.
