Esteva, Casa Ferreirinha, Douro. Portugal

£9.99
Quantity:

‘Ferreirinha’ was the affectionate nickname of Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, the nineteenth-century head of the Ferreira port house, and the company’s unfortified Douro wines are bottled under the Casa Ferreirinha label. They were the pioneers of this style, launching Barca Velha with the 1952 vintage; it set the standard then for high quality dry red wines, and remains Portugal’s most sought-after to this day. The rest of the range follows in this tradition.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of ripe redcurrant and raspberry as well as some hints of violets. Well-balanced in the mouth, a result of the softness of Tinta Barroca, the body and length of Touriga Franca and the elegance of Tinta Roriz.

The traditional Douro varieties that make up this wine are all from estates in the Pinhão area and some higher-altitude areas nearby. Grapes were hand-picked.
