3rd time of ordering. Quick and easy and prompt delivery. I have told lots of friends so expect more orders from our small village and neighbouring ones.

Winemaking:
It 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 some years. During ageing, the wines are monitored and tasted by the oenology team, which selects the wines and supervises the blending so as to reach the final wine, with the character and style of Porto Ferreira Ruby. The final blend has an average age of about 3 years.

84 points - Ferreira Ruby Port

The simplest of the Ferreira range of Ports, but still a bright fresh red fruit-flavored wine with a smooth texture. Good raisins and very soft tannins.
