Casa Ferreirinha Esteva
Ruby in color. This wine has a nice intensity with notes of red berries, such as strawberries and cherries, and floral hints of violet and rockrose, alongside balsamic tones of resin, cedar and tobacco box. Smooth on the palate, this wine has prominent yet polished tannins, a well-integrated acidity and a harmonious finish.
35% Tinta Roriz, 30% Tinta Barroca, 20% Touriga Franca, 15% Touriga Nacional
Produced at Quinta do Seixo and vinified mostly from grapes selected from our wine estates, specifically, those from high altitude areas. After soft-crushing and destemming, the grapes are transferred to stainless steel tanks, where alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures takes place. This wine remains in stainless steel tanks after malolactic fermentation. At the end of winter, it undergoes its first racking to separate sediment. The final blend is made from a selection of wines, which are subject to numerous tests and analysis throughout maturation. In order to preserve the highest possible quality, the wine is bottled further to careful finishing processes. All the technology employed is focused on producing a "young" wine.
This wine pairs wonderfully with meat dishes, fish and lightly seasoned pasta.
