Tawny Port NV, Douro. Portugal

£13.49
Quantity:

This most Portugese 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

A fresh, delicate aroma, reminiscent of spices and dried fruit, reflecting the oak ageing. In the mouth this is an elegant wine that shows a fine balance between structure and sweetness, providing it with an attractive long finish.

Made from a careful selection of traditional red varieties from the Douro region, the grapes for this wine are grown at Ferreira’s own estates and at surrounding vineyards. All grapes are hand-picked.
