Ferreira Port White
Porto Ferreira White has an appealing yellow-straw hue and a fresh but intense aroma, with attractive floral and fruit tones. Soft and very well balanced in the mouth, it is a rich and full wine, with added complexity and nobility deriving from careful ageing in wood.

Porto Ferreira White 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 the natural sweetness of Porto Wine. 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 Villa Nova de Gaia and stored in oak casks, where they age for several years. During their ageing, the oenology team monitors the wines and through blending, refreshes and corrects whenever tasting so determines. The final blend is obtained with a selection of wines that incorporate the appropriate characteristics and ages between 2 and 5 years old, ensuring a product that is rich and balanced, with an average age of about 3 years.
Served chilled, on its own or accompanying nuts and toasted almonds, Porto Ferreira White makes an ideal aperitif. For a highly refreshing option, full of flavor, try a Ferreira Tonic.
