Product of: Peru
Pisco Portón is a mosto verde pisco distilled from a blend of 3 grape varietals (Quebranta, Torontel and Albilla) in traditional copper pot stills and is rested 5 to 8 months before bottling. Pisco Portón is distilled to strength with no water added to meet bottling strength.
Pisco Portón was founded in 2009 by Brent Kallop and his father William, with Johnny Schuler, Puru's most celebrated authority on Pisco who now acts as the brand's ambassador and master distiller.
Pisco Portón is made at Peru's Hacienda La Caravedo Distillery, which dates back to 1684. Since 2009, the trio has invested more than US$40 million in Portón and in 2010 the company added a second distillery with a capacity of 110,000 cases.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 02/03/2011
Earthy yet floral and fresh with vegetal and sweet herbal, grassy aromas.
Full-bodied with an initial sweetness quickly turning dry. Cucumber-like vegetal flavours with cinnamon, white pepper spice and orange blossom water.
Light white pepper spice dominates the floral finish.
