£28.99
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

Porto Ferreira Dona Antónia Tawny 10 Years Old has a deep tawny hue with red hints. Its aroma is characterised by an excellent balance between the quality of its original grapes and wine (noticeable in its floral and ripe fruit aromas) and its ageing through oxidation in wood (which gives it spicy and nutty aromas). In the mouth, the classic and fresh style of the Ferreira brand is conspicuous, achieving a fine balance between the different sensations in the wine body and in the long final in the mouth

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