Thank You once again, on I think my 4th order, the quality of our wines we are now drinking has just got better and better. A practical alternative to our high street shops with such helpful tasting notes. Thank again and I look forward to dealing with you in the future. Peter

The hardest thing to deal with is the overwhelming choice, Just Buy & Try - Great fun trying new wines without breaking the bank. Great service, delivery to your door and great prices, what's not to like? I have already had 3 deliverys and all the wines and Port have been really nice. I highly recommend you give it a try!

Winemaking:
The grapes were hand-picked at the optimum stage of ripening and were vinified in accordance Porto winemaking''s traditional practices. Gentle crushing and partial de-stemming of the perfectly ripened fruit was followed by a very intense period of maceration during the alcoholic fermentation. To achieve the optimum skin extraction that delivers the colour, flavour, tannin components for a Vintage Porto Wine, the grapes were pressed in the granite lagares at controlled temperatures of 28ºC. Only the most exceptional wines were chosen for the final blend of this Porto Ferreira Vintage and were taken to the Ferreira lodges at Vila Nova de Gaia. Here they were aged in large oak wood vats, in keeping with the Ferreira style, under ideal temperature and humidity conditions. Their gradual evolution was constantly monitored by the winemaking team who, after numerous tastings, confirmed the wines were of vintage quality and prepared the final blend.

Grape Varieties:
Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Sousão

Tasting Notes:
This wine is the deepest crimson, almost opaque in colour. It displays great intensity, complexity and harmony on the nose. A prevalence of floral notes, especially rock-rose and heather as well as warm cedar hints from its time in oak. Spices such as pepper, with an undertone of curry, as well as some mineral notes are also in evidence. On the palate it has a lively attack, with balanced acidity, and robust and distinct tannins. Red fruits and spices, especially pepper, come to the fore during tasting. It has a long and supremely well-balanced finish.

Store and Serve Advices:
The bottle should be kept horizontally, under a constant temperature of between 16ºC-18ºC and sheltered from intense light. Over time Vintage Porto develops a natural deposit, and it should be opened with care and decanted prior to serving, ideally at between 16ºC-18ºC. Once the bottle has been opened, it should be enjoyed within 1-2 days.

Food Pairing:
When mature, it is ideal on its own or with dried fruits. It goes well with rich cheeses such as Queijo da Serra.
