In homage to Ferreirinha, the Dona Antónia range is now renovated and reinforced with a White Reserve to accompany the already existing Tawny Reserve. In the Douro it has always been traditional to plant white grapes. And if at the time the objective was to have wines with little personality to eventually be mixed with red wines to give them lightness and a more open color, today the objectives are quite different. Acidity and structure that give a good aging capacity to wines, worthy of a reserve category, are the characteristics that the oenology team led by Luís Sottomayor seeks in the Douro Superior for the production of the new Dona Antónia Reserva Branco. Ferreirinha herself was a pioneer towards the Douro Superior, and records from 1852 indicate that in the middle of the 19th century Dona Antónia was producing white wines that serve as a legacy for this Porto Ferreira launch.
Golden yellow color. Very intense aroma, with notes of bitter orange jam, floral notes, exotic wood and dried fruits, and slightly spicy with curry and pepper. Its aging in wood ennobles it, complexing it and giving it the necessary wealth. In the mouth it shows a good structure, good balance between acidity and sweetness, notes of dried fruits and a long and delicate finish.
Porto Ferreira Dona Antónia Reserva Branco goes well with alheira soufflé or desserts such as mango mousse and bacon from heaven.
