Dona Antonia 20yo Ferreira Old Tawny Port.


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

Porto Ferreira Dona Antónia Tawny 20 Years Old has an attractive tawny colour with coppery hues. Its intense
bouquet shows the character of a well-balanced maturing through oxidation: nuts, spices and a hint of dry fruit
and marmalade. In the mouth it is a full-bodied, delicate, soft, velvety and lingering wine. In spite of its age it
has well-balanced freshness, a consequence of the refreshing with younger wines carried out through its
maturation. It is a fine, elegant and deeply lingering wine.

Porto Ferreira Dona Antónia Tawny 20 Years Old makes a very elegant aperitif and goes well with several
rich starters, such as foie-gras or intense cheese pies, salty dumplings or sea-food. It is perfect with deserts
such as crème caramel, apple pie and nuts or even fresh peaches. It is also a great accompaniment for cured or blue cheese, and is delicious if served on its own
and/or slightly chilled.

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.
