Ferreira is the only great Port Wine house to have remained in Portuguese hands since its foundation. Established in 1751, it became particularly prominent under the leadership of Dona Antonia Ferreira in the early 18th century whose legacy is still felt today. More than 250 years after its founding this is the Portuguese brand and the benchmark for excellent quality Port and Douro wines and the symbol of a country and a culture it proudly honours.
This 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.more ↓ less ↑
