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. A truly modern example of Douro light wine showcasing the fresh, vibrant fruit and fine, balanced structure that can be achieved with careful grape selection from some of the finest vineyards in the region. This wine is deep ruby red in colour with violet nuances. It has a very intense aroma, dominated by floral notes of basil and rock rose, light menthol tones and notes of red fruits and apricot. On the palate, it has good body, well-integrated acidity, smooth tannins and red fruit notes. Its finish is elegant and balanced.
