Controlled fermentation took place in stainless steel vats and it was stopped through the addition of wine alcohol. The resulting wines were very elegant and with a good ageing potential. The wines selected to enter the final blend of the Porto Ferreira Quinta do Porto Tawny 10 Years Old remain in the Douro after the harvest and are taken to V.N.Gaia in the following Spring and enter the traditional Porto Wine ageing process, in oak casks. During their ageing period, the wines are subjected to numerous transfers, analyses and tasting, making it possible to monitor their ageing and intervene through blending, refreshing and corrections whenever tasting so advises. The final blend is obtained using wines aged between 8 and 15 years, so as always to achieve the average age, quality and style of Porto Ferreira Quinta do Porto Tawny 10 Years Old.
