Ferreira Port Quinta do Porto
A deep, almost opaque, ruby color. An aroma of excellent intensity and complexity, with notes of black fruit, anise, liquorice, floral tones of violets and a slight spiciness. This wine also has hints of cocoa, courtesy of a warm year and a good maturation. On the palate, it has excellent volume, firm tannins of great quality, a well-integrated acidity, further notes of black fruit and cocoa, and an extremely long and harmonious finish.
48% Touriga Nacional, 35% Touriga Franca, 14% Vinhas Velhas, 3% Sousão
Vinified from selected grapes from plots within the Quinta do Porto vineyard. The grapes were sorted in the vineyard and again on arrival at the winery. After soft-crushing and destemming, gentle maceration took place at controlled temperatures via treading in traditional granite lagares. After the harvest, the wines remained in the Douro. They were subsequently transported to the wine cellars, in Villa Nova de Gaia, the following spring, where they were aged in the traditional manner in oak casks. During this period, the wines were subject to racking, tests and analysis to help monitor their development. The final blend was made after a careful selection of wines, in order to ensure the highest possible quality.
Its elegant and complex profile make this wine the ideal accompaniment to rich chocolaty desserts, red fruit tarts and intense cheeses.
It is at Quinta do Porto that this singular wine is produced. Acquired by Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira in 1863, this vineyard has always cultivated the brand's best wines and the 2017 vintage is no exception. A result of the fabulous terroir where it originates, this wine also reflects the fantastic redevelopment of the estate's 59 acres of vineyards, undertaken by Sogrape's viticulture team over a period of more than 10 years.
