The grapes were sourced from the Douro Superior sub-region, namely from Quinta da Leda and from with their own vineyards, preferably exposed to the North and at a higher altitude. After being destemmed and lightly crushed, the grapes are carried into stainless steel vats, where the alcoholic fermentation process takes place. During this stage, periodical smooth macerations are carried out with controlled temperatures. After the final fermentations, a period of maturation in tanks of stainless steel and cement followed. The final blend was made further to tests and analysis conducted during this period. To preserve the highest possible quality, the wine was only subject to light fining and filtration prior to bottling.
This wine pairs wonderfully with red meat dishes. Very gastronomic, it also serves as a perfect accompaniment to white meat or oven-roasted fish.
With its bright and attractive colors, the Papa Figos is one of the rarest birds in the Douro. This bird's unique and rare character is the perfect inspiration for this magnificent wine. Papa Figos is both an elegant and vibrant, classic, yet modern wine that accurately reflects the values of Casa Ferreirinha, the brand with the longest tradition in producing high quality Douro wines and one of the greatest references in the region.
