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.After gentle destemming and soft-crushing, the grapes were transferred to stainless steel tanks where maceration of the skins and fermentation took place – at controlled temperatures. After fermentation, around 25% of the wine was aged in used French oak barrels with the remainder left in stainless steel tanks. The final blend is assembled eight months after harvest and bottled after 12 months.

Tasting Note

This wine is deep ruby red in colour with violet nuances. Intensely aromatic with fresh red berries, heather and balsamic savoury spice on the nose. The spicy red fruit profile follows onto the full bodied palate that balances smooth tannins with well-integrated acidity on a harmonious finish.
