Casa Ferreirinha Papa Figos Douro Branco 2019
A delicious Portuguese White from native grapes, peachy and floral kept fresh with minerality.
A careful grape selection from some of the high-altitude vineyards in the region, this dry white is lemon yellow in colour with golden tints. Very aromatic with prominent floral notes, tropical fruit and herbaceous qualities. On the palate, it is well-structured, fruity, and with a subtle minerality and a long, persistent finish.
Enjoy over the next 1-2 years.
Antónia Ferreira was ffectionately nicknamed 'Ferreirinha' by her countrymen, today the house pays homage to her memory and was the first house in the Douro region dedicated to making light wines. The 'Papa Figos' wines, named after a rare bird which arrives in spring when the vines are awakening, offer true portuguese character, and are very drinkable and supeb value for money.
