Winemaking:
Porto Ferreira Dona Antónia Reserva Branco is made by the traditional Porto Wine method. The grapes were picked slightly over-ripe. After light crushing and destalking, they were macerated in the juice throughout the fermentation period, with the aim of extracting as many of the aromatic compounds from the grape skins as possible. The juice therefore underwent an intensive programme of pumping over, which meant that the desired compounds were completely diffused in the juice, while the skins were kept whole. During this phase, fermentation temperatures and densities were rigorously controlled so as to choose the ideal moment to add the spirit required to stop the fermentation, which depends on the grape varieties, ripeness and desired sweetness (medium in the case of our White Porto range). The balance of body and aroma was achieved by selecting grape varieties with the right characteristics, and choosing when to stop the fermentation. This determines the final sweetness of the wine. After the harvest, the wine remained in the Douro, and during the winter underwent the first racking, at which time certain adjustments were made. It was transported to Vila Nova de Gaia during the following spring, where it began the traditional ageing process for Porto Wine, in oak casks of 640 litres, in Ferreira style. During this period, the wines are racked, analysed and tasted many times, which enables the winemakers to follow their progress, and begin to think about the blend. The final blend is chosen from selected batches that, when put together, have the taste profile of Porto Ferreira Dona Antónia Reserva Branco. To this end, we choose wines aged between 4 and 9 years so as to maintain the same style, with an average age of 7 years. After blending come the final touches before bottling.
