Port

Port is a sweet, fortified wine that originally came from the northern regions of Portugal.

To make port grape alcohol is added to wine partway through fermentation. This stop the fermentation process and is done at a stage where there still are plenty of sweetness in the wine, but the fermentation has continued long enough to produce alcohol. The port is then aged, sometimes as long as 40 years, most of the time on the bottle.
