The name Ferreira is known in the world of Port Wines and Douro Wines as a brand that produces wines of great quality since 1751. Named by Wine & Spirits Magazine as one of the top producers of 2012, this historic house is one of the great ambassadors of port and Portuguese wines.
Rarely more than three years old, Ferreira uniquely achieves this Tawny despite such short aging by maturing the wine in oak casks smaller than the traditional Port "Pipes". On the palate, it is an elegant wine with a smooth velvety mouth feel that shows a fine balance between mature tannins and sweetness, along with flavors of raisin, fig, date, almond, cream, caramel and loads of dried fruit. Long and great finish, confirming its sophisticated flavors.
