There is currently a fashion for dated tawnies with Taylor, Warre and now Quinta do Vallado all releasing old colheitas over the past year. This wine from Vallado has a better pedigree than most. It has been bottled to commemorate Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira´s 200th Anniversary which fell last year. Vallado belonged to Dona Antónia and this wine dates from 1866, pre-dating phylloxera. She died some 30 years later in 1896, by then the largest landowner in the Douro with 24 quintas to her name.
