Porto Ferreira Dona Antónia Reserve is a premium reserve red Porto, created to celebrate the memory of the
charismatic lady - Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira - that in the 19th century led and inspired the company to gain
its future, confirming the values that would established it as leading quality winemakers and number one brand in
Portugal.
Luís Sottomayor Porto Ferreira Dona Antónia Reserve is vinified using the traditional Porto Wine method. Hand-picked
grapes are softly crushed and, after partial stalk-removal, fermented with maceration allowing the best
components of the grape skins to be extracted. The whole process takes place under strict control of both
temperature and wine density, making it possible for the winemaker to choose the ideal moment for the
addition of wine alcohol, fundamental to halt fermentation and keep Porto wine natural sweetness. That
moment depends on vine varieties, stage of maturation and final sweetness levels required.
Ageing
The wines selected for the final blend of this reserve Porto wine stay in the Douro after the harvest and are
taken to the company´s traditional Porto Wine lodges in V.N.Gaia the following Spring where they mature
in oak casks. For several years the wines undergo numerous transfers, analyses and tasting that monitor the
ageing of wines, preparation of blends, as well as refreshing and eventual adjustment when tasting so
determines. The final blend is composed with wines from different ages and origins to achieve a consistency
of style and quality typical of Porto Ferreira Dona Antónia Reserve. The selected wines usually vary between
4 and 12 years of age, achieving an average age of about 7 years.

Suggestions
Its bouquet is intense and rich with hints of very ripe fruit (plum, apricot and marmalade)
and floral notes. Complex, its spice and nutty notes derive from the evolution in oak wood, through oxidation.
Porto Ferreira Dona Antónia Reserve has a beautiful red colour, with intense tawny shades that recall its slow
maturation in wood.
In the mouth, it is a full-bodied and rich-flavoured wine, extremely well balanced, that combines elegance. With a delicate yet persistent finish. 15ºC-17ºC. Porto Ferreira Dona Antónia Reserve is a most versatile Porto Wine. It is very good served on its own, accompanying some selected entrées or as dessert wine. It
also accompanies beautifully most sweets, desserts and cheeses. Serve slightly cold for
fuller appreciation.
