Add to favourites

Casa Ferreirinha was the first Douro producer dedicated entirely to making table wines, rather than Port. It is named after the legendary Dona Antónia Ferreira, one of the formidable widows of the world of wine. 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.

Papa Figos Branco is a blend of native varieties and comprises 50% Rabigato, 20% Viosinho and 15% each of Artino Pederna and Codega. The vineyards are situated in the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior at around 600 metres above sea level. The mountainous vineyards have schist soils with vines planted either in “vinha ao alto” vertical rows or on “patamares” terraces. Grapes grown at this altitude benefit from a wide diurnal temperature range, with hot days counteracted by cool nights, and the grapes undergo an ideal slow ripening process, accumulating great flavour intensity whilst retaining acidity.

This dry white is lemon yellow in colour with golden tints. It is very aromatic with prominent floral notes, citrus and
stone fruit aromas. On the palate, it has great freshness with a balanced acidity and a subtle minerality. The finish is crisp and elegant.
