Grapes from the best plots at the Quintas do Caêdo and other Sogrape Douro estates are fermented at the Quinta do Seixo Winery following traditional Port Wine methods in granite treading tanks. This ancestral winemaking technique allows the grapes to release their components and naturally express the aromas of the grape varieties and its terroir. The wines are transported to the Ferreira traditional cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia in the spring following harvest. Stored in used oak vats in the ideal conditions of these bicentennial ageing lodges, the wines undergo a short maturation period under the constant care of the wine team who, following analysis, creates a final blend of extraordinary quality that is bottled in the 2nd year after harvest and laid down for a very long cellaring.
The structure of this extraordinary wine, rich and elegant, is a perfect match to dark chocolate, red and wild berries desserts and intense cheeses, such as a strong blue cheese.
