We bring you two amazing premium wines by Casa Ferreirinha that don’t disappoint. Think fruity, full-bodied freshness with lovely texture and depth.
steva Douro Tinto 2018
Composition: 40% Tinta Roriz, 35% Tinta Barroca, 15% Touriga
Franca, 10% Touriga Nacional.
This delightful red is bright ruby in colour with aromas of ripe strawberries, juicy cherries, and floral hints. It’s smooth on the palate, with polished tannins and a well-integrated acidity that gives lovely freshness and vivacity with an elegant finish.
It pairs beautifully with beef, lamb, pork, and also spicy chicken.
Veggie dishes with mushrooms and strong cheese will also work.
Planalto Douro Branco 2019
Composition: Viosinho, Arinto/Pedernã, Códega, Gouveio
(Verdelho), Malvasia fina, Moscatel, Rabigato.
There’s so much variety in this bottle that you’ll love! It’s lemon yellow in colour with citrus and tropical fruit notes that stand out alongside subtle floral nuances and a touch of minerality. On the palate, this wine is crisp with a lively acidity balancing the concentrated fruit flavours and a clean, fresh finish.
It pairs beautifully with fish and seafood, as well as squids. It also works with chicken, veggies dishes, salads, and any cheese.
Enjoy the wines with assorted gourmet peanuts from Filberts and Crambrooks fine foods. The spiciness and nuttiness take the wine’s flavours to a whole new level. Enjoy x
