Description

In homage to 'the Ferreirinha', the Dona Antónia range has now been modernised and strengthened with the addition of a Reserva Branco alongside the existing Reserva Tawny. There have always been white grapes planted in the Douro Valley. In former times, they were used to make wine with minimal character destined to be blended with red wines, lightening them in both colour and body. Today, our objectives are quite different. The winemaking team, led by Luís Sottomayor, specifically seeks out Upper Douro grapes worthy of reserve status to make the new Dona Antónia Reserva Branco, with the kind of acidity and structure that will ensure good ageing potential. 'The Ferreirinha' herself was something of a pioneer in the Upper Douro, and record books of 1852 show that, as early as the mid-19th century, Dona Antónia was producing white wines that were the predecessors of this new white Porto Ferreira.

Tasting

Coulour : Golden yellow

Aroma : has an intense aroma, with notes of bitter marmalade, a floral quality, exotic wood and dried fruits and nuts, with a light, peppery and curry-like spice. The wood ageing adds nobility, complexity and the required richness.

Service : 10ºC-12ºC. Once opened, it does not need decanting, and will remain in good condition for around two months.

Food Pairrings : Porto Ferreira Dona Antónia Reserva Branco is good with soufflés, pâtés and deserts.

Degree: 20%°
