Description: Luis Sottomayor is the current winemaker at this old-world winery founded in 1751. The vineyards are spread around the upper and lower Corgo, and Douro area. The nature of the schist soil found in the steep hills along the Douro River is critical for the unique character of Port wines from Portugal. Porto Ferreira Tawny has a beautiful red hue with fair hints as well as a fresh and delicate aroma, reminiscent of spices and nuts, acquired during the ageing in oak wood. In the mouth it is an elegant wine that shows a fine balance between mature tannins and sweetness, providing it with an attractive, long finish.
