Casa Ferreirinha Papa Figos 2020 White Wine – Duoro, Portugal
Of all the birds in the Douro, the golden oriole (papa figos in Portuguese) is one of the rarest. It’s an attractive, brightly-coloured migratory bird, unique and rare, and thus the perfect inspiration for this lovely wine.
Grape varieties selected from the high areas of the Upper Douro sub-region were specially chosen for this wine. Good ripening is achieved in those areas while maintaining the desired freshness and acidity. After carefully being destemmed, the grapes are pressed and the free-run juice is separated from the other presses. This is followed by decantation at a low temperature with rigorous oenological control. Once the desired clarity is obtained, alcoholic fermentation is started at a controlled temperature between 16ºC and 18ºC. At this temperature, fermentation takes around 20 days.
