Winemaking:
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.

Tasting Notes:
It has an attractive tawny colour with coppery hues. Its intense bouquet shows the character of a well-balanced maturing through oxidation: nuts, spices and a hint of dry fruit and marmalade. In the mouth it is a full-bodied, delicate, soft, velvety and lingering wine. In spite of its age it has well-balanced freshness, a consequence of the refreshing with younger wines carried out through its maturation. It is a fine, elegant and deeply lingering wine.

It is also a great accompaniment for cured or blue cheese, and is delicious if served on its own and/or slightly chilled.

18,5 points - Ferreira 20 Years Duque de Bragança Port

Very fine aroma, mineral, great complexity, very Rico. Very well in the mouth, with a perfect texture, all in finesse, delicious fruit and creamy sensation that leaves.

86 points - Ferreira 20 Years Duque de Bragança Port

The light amber-colored 20 year old Duque de Braganca reveals an attractive, spicy nose, sweet, ripe, full-bodied fruit, and copious amounts of alcohol. It is one of the better 20 year old ports I have tasted. The Ferreira offerings reviewed in this segment are an uninspiring group of ports.

93 points - Ferreira 20 Years Duque de Bragança Port

Always one of the best 20-year-olds, and this is no exception. The secret is in the velvet-like smoothness, which combines with a balanced mix of fig and caramel flavors, just a touch of burnt vanilla and the sort of acidity that makes you want another glass. Delicious.

92 points - Ferreira 20 Years Duque de Bragança Port

Rich, smooth and polished, exhibiting an array of dried apricot, pear and guava flavors that are accented by plenty of apple wood smoke notes. The lush finish surges with mineral, along with hints of peat and ginger cream. Drink now.
