The Quinta do Porto Tawny 10 Year is a special wine named after the celebrated estate Quinta do Porto. It is a symbol of the perfect alliance between the unique Douro and man’s skill, a harmony established at Ferreira for over 250 years. The selected hand-picked grapes have been vinified in accordance with the traditional Porto Wine method. Controlled fermentation took place in stainless steel vats and it was stopped through the addition of wine alcohol. The wines selected to enter the final blend are aged in oak casks. During this aging period, the wines are subjected to numerous transfers, analyses and tastings. The final blend is obtained using wines aged between 8 and 15 years. The final wine has a deep tawny hue with red hints. It has floral and ripe fruit aromas; along with spicy and nutty aromas from its aging through oxidation in wood. The palate has a fine balance between the different sensations in the wine body with a long finish. The bottle should be stored upright, avoiding direct light and excessive humidity, ideally at a constant temperature of 16°C–18°C. It is ready for drinking and will not improve if kept for a long time. Once open, it maintains good tasting notes for about 2-3 months. Serve slightly chilled. -91 Points Kim Marcus, Wine Spectator, December, 2010
