Quinta do Porto 10yo Tawny Port

£26.99
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

The nose is characterised by an excellent balance between the floral and ripe fruit aromas of the grapes themselves and the spicy, dry fruit aromas of long ageing in barrel. The palate shows the classic, fresh Ferreira style, achieving a fine balance and a the long finish.

The grapes in this port are carefully selected and hand-picked from the Quinta do Porto estate and adjoining vineyards in the Pinhão area.
