Andy's Tasting Notes

60% Touriga France, 25% Touriga Nacional, 15% Tinta Roriz. A benchmark Douro red of power, complexity and a pleasing balance to this wine with hedgerow fruits, spice, mint, herbs, cedar and liquorice.

The grapes were picked from different sections of the Quinta da Leda estate as well as some neighbouring vineyards. Quinta da Leda’s 160 hectares of vines were planted in collaboration with the Universidade de Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro de Vila Real, where a study was carried out on clonal research to select the best varieties in the Douro. The findings decided the varieties to be chosen and planted on this estate, using only the best clones of each variety for grafting.

Producer Info

This historic producer, founded in 1952, is named after the legendary Porto matriarch Dona Antónia Ferreira. Affectionately nicknamed ‘Ferreirinha’ by her countrymen, the house pays homage to her memory and was the first house in the region dedicated to making light wines.  The winemaking is headed up by Luís Sottomayor, who restrains the Douro’s natural exuberance to produce wines that have a freshness, like Esteva and Papa Figos, allied to a lovely depth and texture, as with Vinha Grande Tinto and Quinta da Leda.
