Grape varieties: Touriga Nacional, Tinta Francisca, Tinta Roriz

This most Portuguese of port houses is steeped in 250 years of tradition, and gained its current high reputation during the nineteenth century under the leadership of Dona Antónia Ferreira. Like several important figures in the history of Champagne, she was widowed young, and took control of the family business with a gusto few of her male counterparts could match. The Douro benefited both viticulturally and socially from her various projects, and Ferreira remains blessed with a superb range of vineyard holdings from which to craft their range of full, elegant ports.
The Ferreira Late Bottled Vintage (LBV) Port is a high quality Porto Wine, which combines the unique characteristics of the year in which it was produced with the comfort of being able to enjoy it immediately or after some ageing in the bottle. LBV Ports are single harvest wines, bottled 4 to 6 years after the vintage. A profound, almost opaque, violet colour the Ferreira LBV has an intense and complex aroma with fresh shrubby notes, spicy hints of black pepper and ginger, black fruits and a touch of cocoa courtesy of a good maturation. On the palate, this port wine has excellent volume, firm tannins of great quality, a well-integrated acidity, notes of black fruit and resinous wood. It has a long and complex finish
