Ferreira Vintage Port 2018, Douro, Portugal
Cold and dry winter. Extremely rainy spring, which allowed the replenishment of water reserves in the soil but affected flowering and contributed to an abnormal incidence of vine diseases, resulting in considerably lower yields. Despite the hot and dry summer, the humidity levels in the soils provided a long and balanced end to maturation, allowing the production of wines of excellent quality.
Grapes from the best plots at the Quintas do Caêdo and other Sogrape Douro estates are fermented at the Quinta do Seixo Winery following traditional Port Wine methods in granite treading tanks. This ancestral winemaking technique allows the grapes to release their components and naturally express the aromas of the grape varieties and its terroir.
45% Touriga Franca, 40% Touriga Nacional, 10% Tinta Roriz, 5% Sousão
Deep color, almost opaque, with intense and complex aromas with floral and balsamic notes, combined with resin, cedar, tobacco box, black fruits, spices, pepper, and a slightly stony touch. On the palate it has excellent body, very well integrated acidity, powerful tannins and notes of spices with a long, lively finish of great harmony.
Like all wines matured in bottle, Vintage Ports will form sediments with time and benefit from being carefully opened and decanted some hours before consumption, for a better appreciation. Serve at 16ºC-18ºC (60ºF-64ºF).
