Casa Ferreirinha, Vinha Grande

£17.50

Ruby in colour, this wine opens with an intense nose of raspberry, blackberry, cedar, and subtle hints of tobacco. The palate delivers a refreshing acidity with further notes of fresh red fruit that are continued throughout the long finish. Vinification in stainless steel and ageing took place in used French oak barrels for roughly 12 months.

Ideal to accompany meat, cheeses, and pasta dishes. It may also be enjoyed with white meat or oven-steamed fish.

Casa Ferreirinha was the first Douro producer dedicated entirely to making table wines, rather than Port. Its origins date back to 1952 when Fernando Nicolau de Almeida produced the first ever vintage of Barca-Velha and kickstarted the quality revolution in Douro table wines. Named after the legendary Dona Antónia Ferreira, one of the formidable widows of the world of wine, Casa Ferreirinha pays homage to the memory of this visionary woman. Today, the winemaking team is headed up by Luís Sottomayor, who restrains the Douro’s natural exuberance to produce wines that have a vibrant freshness allied to a lovely texture and depth.
