Duque de Bragança 20yo Tawny Port

£34.95
Quantity:

This most Portuguese of port houses is steeped in 250 years of tradition, and gained its current high reputation during the nineteenth century under the leadership of Dona Antónia Ferreira. Like several important figures in the history of Champagne, she was widowed young, and took control of the family business with a gusto few of her male counterparts could match. The Douro benefited both viticulturally and socially from her various projects, and Ferreira remains blessed with a superb range of vineyard holdings from which to craft their range of full, elegant ports.

Tasting Notes

An intense bouquet showing the character of well-balanced maturing through oxidation: dry fruits, spices and a hint of ripe fruit and marmalade. In the mouth it is a full-bodied, delicate, soft, velvety and lingering wine. In spite of its age it has a marked and well-balanced freshness.

The grapes for this port were carefully selected and hand-picked from Ferreira’s leading estates in the Upper Corgo sub-region of the Douro.
