Taylor’s Chip Dry White Port, Douro, Portugal NV

taylor-fladgate-chip-dry-white-port-portugal-10295864Spritzers are the perfect summer drink, according to David Williams. Writing in The Guardian this week, the wine expert rounded up a selection of wines that work well when mixed with sparkling water.

He said: “I’m told that in Portugal’s Douro Valley the popular alternative to the spritzer is a mix of white port and tonic, or, if you must, Portonic. I’m not sure if that really is the case: it’s always offered when I’ve visited but I wonder whether that has more to do with port producers trying to find ways of selling the stuff rather than evidence of a genuine local custom. Not that it matters: with a slice of lemon, some ice and a few sprigs of mint, Taylor’s version makes a light, dry long drink pitched somewhere between a G&T and a vermouth and lemonade. Try the same recipe with M&S’s Pink Port (£8.99) and you have a less medicinal Pimm’s.”

Price: £12.99, Waitrose
