Ferreira Dona Antonia Reserve Port NV

Member Review by ferri:

my Denist brought this back for me from portugal,(i am his nurse) which is where he originally comes from! i have to say this is by far the best tasting red wine i have ever tried in my life!!. At 46 years of age, i have tried a few!! and it has nothing to do with the fact i lost the sell of my property today and i owe heaps of money in legal fees! this really is a delicious wine!. I don't think i will drink another bottle of moody red wine ever again!!, but then again after looking at my bank balance this is probably a lie!!. So i will take my time and enjoy!!

Ferreira is one of the top Port producers, based in the Douro region of Portugal. The Ferreira family was already making wines in the Douro by the 1750s, a few years before it became an officially recognized wine region in 1756. When Doña Antonia Adelaïde Ferreira, great-granddaughter of the winery’s founder, became a widow at age 33, she decided to channel all her energy and time into building up the business, expanding grape-planting, production and promotion of the winery. All this effort helped build Ferreira into a facility that is still one of the largest and most successful in the region. Ferreira meticulously selects grapes and controls all stages of wine production. They still use a pressing technique that mimics the quality achieved by manual foot-pressing. They are known for their elegant style, not too strong and concentrated, as Doña Antonio preferred it.  Read less

Ferreira Ruby has an intense and well defined ruby hue, showing the quality of the selected wines. Its intense aroma is reminiscent of very ripe fruit, fine-tuned through its careful ageing in wood as well as through the blending carried out during its natural ageing process. Full-bodied and rich, it has a fine balance between its sweetness and its tannin structure, giving it unique characteristics and a fine and attractive long finish. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

"A Great Character" - Although Ferreira`s origins date back to the 18th century, it was the tough-minded determination of Dona Antonia Adelaide Ferreira that so effectively established this Port House`s reputation during the 19th century. Born in the `Comet Year` 1811, Dona Antonia belonged to the fourth generation of this distinguished Port-producing family, and can be credited with establishing the high standards that are the hallmark of Ferreira Ports. She devoted herself to providing Portugal not only with great wines, but also roads, hospitals, and schools. Dona Antonia remains a revered figure in the country even today, and is known as the "Grande Dame" of the Port industry. Dona Antonia Reserve is delicious when served with dried fruits, cheese, puddings and cool desserts.
