Description

Ferreira Tawny Port is vinified using the traditional Porto Wine method. Hand-picked grapes are softly crushed and, after partial stalk-removal, fermented with maceration allowing the best components of the grape skins to be extracted. The whole process takes place under strict control of both temperature and wine density, making it possible for the winemaker to choose the ideal moment for the addition of wine alcohol, fundamental to halt fermentation and keep Porto Wine natural sweetness. That moment depends on vine varieties, stage of maturation and final sweetness levels required. After the harvest, the wine stays in the Douro, where the winter cold helps lees to settle. The following spring, the wines are transferred to the traditional company lodges at V.N. Gaia and stored in oak casks, where they will age for several years. During their ageing, the oenology team monitors the wines and acts through blending, refreshing and corrections whenever tasting so determines. The final blend is obtained after a selection of wines with appropriate characteristics and ages between 2 and 5 years, making it possible to maintain Porto Ferreira Tawny´s unique identity and an average age of 4 years.

It has a beautiful red hue with fair hints as well as a fresh and delicate aroma, reminiscent of spices and nuts, acquired during the ageing in oak wood. In the mouth it is an elegant wine that shows a fine balance between mature tannins and sweetness, providing it with an attractive, long finish.

Store and Serve Advice: The bottle should be stored upright, avoiding direct light and excessive humidity, ideally at a constant temperature of 16ºC-18ºC. is ready for drinking and will not improve if kept for a long time. Serve between 14ºC-16ºC.
