Bursting with ripe fruits - strawberry, blackberry & cherry. smooth and velvety.
Tasting Notes: 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.
The golden oriole (‘papa figos’ in Portuguese) is one of the rarest birds in the Douro region. An attractive, brightly-coloured migratory bird, its uniqueness and rarity make it the perfect inspiration for this lovely wine from Casa Ferreirinha. The grapes are selected from the Douro Superior region, with around 25% coming from Quinta da Leda and the rest from producers owning vineyards that ideally face north or are at a relatively high altitude of up to 400 metres.
