Ferreira Vintage Port 1978 (75cl)

This vintage port boasts an intense aroma dominated by red fruits, exotic woods and spicy notes of pepper and clove. On the palate it had balanced acidity and high-quality tannins, giving it a full-bodied personality. It has a very long, harmonious finish of great elegance, with aromas of mature red fruits and a typical note of varnish often found in vintages.

Ferreira was established in the Douro in 1751 by a family of Portuguese wine growers & merchants and has been Portuguese owned ever since. The Ferreira name has always been synonymous with high-quality Portuguese wine and today the three main estates of Quinta do Porto, Quinta do Caêdo and Quinta da Leda cover 122 ha of vines. The brand's history is intertwined with the history of the evolution of the Douro Region (demarcated in 1756) and its Port and table wines (Douro DOC). The twice widowed Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira took over the business at 33 in the early 19th century, strengthening and expanding it thanks to her entrepreneurial spirit and charisma. She gave great impetus to wine-growing in Douro and was well-known for her acts of social welfare in the region. Today, Ferreira is "the Portuguese brand", the benchmark in excellent quality Port, the symbol of a country and a culture it proudly honours.
