The Wine:

‘Papa figos’ or ‘fig muncher’ is the nickname for the golden oriole, a migratory bird that passes through the Douro. The Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional grapes for this blend are sourced from high altitude vineyards in the Douro Superior region, with around 25% coming from the Quinta da Leda estate in the far eastern reaches of the region, close to the border with Spain.

Ruby red in colour with violet nuances. On the nose, the wine is bursting with aromas of juicy strawberries, blackberries and cherries. On the palate, velvety tannins give a smooth mouthfeel and a lively acidity balances the ripe fruit flavours and carries them onto the lingering finish.

In order to preserve the bright and juicy fruit flavours of the grapes, there was no use of oak in the winemaking process and the wine remained in a mixture of stainless steel and concrete vats until bottling.

Further Info:

The origins of Casa Ferreirinha date back to 1952, with the production of the first ever vintage of Barca-Velha. Fernando Nicolau de Almeida kickstarted the quality revolution in Douro still wines, with Casa Ferreirinha becoming the first producer in the region dedicated entirely to producing still wine, rather than Port. Named after the legendary Porto matriarch Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, one of the formidable widows of the world of wine, Casa Ferreirinha pays homage to the memory of this visionary woman.

Purchased by Sogrape in 1987, Casa Ferreirinha comprises 520 hectares of vineyard in all three Douro sub-regions: Baixo Corgo, Cima Corgo and Douro Superior. The staggeringly beautiful Quinta da Leda is Casa Ferreirinha’s flagship estate. Located close to the border with Spain, in the far east of the Douro Superior, it is the source of grapes for many of Casa Ferreirinha’s top wines.
