Ferreira White Port NV

Winemaker's Notes:

" 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 Porto wine natural sweetness. That moment depends on vine varieties, stage of maturation and final sweetness levels required. After the vintage, 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 V.N.Gaia and stored in oak casks, where they will age for several years." -Importer

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

Wine Tasting NotesFerreira 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 a careful aging in wood.
