The selected hand-picked grapes have been vinified in accordance with the traditional Porto wine method. Controlled fermentation took place in stainless steel vats and it was stopped through the addition of wine alcohol. The resulting wines were very elegant and with a great ageing potential. The wines selected to enter the final blend of the Porto Ferreira Duque de Bragança Tawny 20 Years Old remain in the Douro after the harvest. They are taken to V.N.Gaia in the following Spring and enter the traditional Porto wine ageing process, in 640-litre oak casks. During their ageing period, the wines are subjected to numerous transfers, analyses and tasting, making it possible to monitor their ageing and intervene through blending, refreshing and corrections whenever tasting so advises. The final blend is obtained using wines aged between 15 and 40 years, so as always to achieve the average age, type, quality and style of Porto Ferreira Duque de Bragança Tawny 20 Years Old.
