Ferreira Dona Antonia Reserva Branco Porto NV White


In homage to ‘the Ferreirinha’, the Dona Antónia range has now been modernised and strengthened with the addition of a Reserva Branco alongside the existing Reserva Tawny. There have always been white grapes planted in the Douro Valley. In former times, they were used to make wine with minimal character destined to be blended with red wines, lightening them in both colour and body. Today, our objectives are quite different. The winemaking team, led by Luís Sottomayor, specifically seeks out Upper Douro grapes worthy of reserve status to make the new Dona Antónia Reserva Branco, with the kind of acidity and structure that will ensure good ageing potential. ‘The Ferreirinha’ herself was something of a pioneer in the Upper Douro, and record books of 1852 show that, as early as the mid-19th century, Dona Antónia was producing white wines that were the predecessors of this new white Porto Ferreira.

Golden yellow in colour. It has an intense aroma, with notes of bitter marmalade, a floral quality, exotic wood and dried fruits and nuts, with a light, peppery and curry-like spice. The wood ageing adds nobility, complexity and the required richness.


About Ferreira

After the harvest, the wine remained in the Douro, and during the winter underwent the first racking, at which time certain adjustments were made. It was transported to Vila Nova de Gaia during the following spring, where it began the traditional ageing process for Porto Wine, in oak casks of 640 litres, in Ferreira style. During this period, the wines are racked, analysed and tasted many times, which enables the winemakers to follow their progress, and begin to think about the blend. The final blend is chosen from selected batches that, when put together, have the taste profile of Porto Ferreira Dona Antónia Reserva Branco. To this end, we choose wines aged between 4 and 9 years so as to maintain the same style, with an average age of 7 years. After blending come the final touches before bottling.
