Casa Ferreirinha Quinta da Leda 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

*93 points - Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast * Casa Ferreirinha and its wines are synonymous with quality, time and art. Thus it has been since the company’s founding in the eighteenth century by Bernardo Ferreira, whose formula was refined by his descendants, especially his granddaughter Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, known affectionately as "Ferreirinha" or "Ferreirinha-da-Régua". Quinta da Leda is a top-quality wine, an exceptional symbol of the richness and modernity of great Douro wines. Quinta da Leda is characterised by great complexity and elegance, distinctive and celebrated features of the wines from Casa Ferreirinha, the standard-bearing Douro brand with a tradition and reputation for quality recognised throughout the world. An exceptional wine, characterised by great complexity and elegance. Aged for 18 months in French oak, 50% of which is new. It is primarily a blend of Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional with some Tinta Roriz. A very deep ruby colour. The complex bouquet displays floral notes, along with black cherry, ripe strawberry and smoky tobacco. The palate is elegant and equally complex, with great intensity. Exuberant flavours of ripe black fruits are in fine harmony with the oak and firm but rounded tannins. A long and harmonious finish. Great cellaring potential. This wine is the ideal partner to rich meat dishes such as venison. Best enjoyed from 2018 to 2033+. 'The wine comes from the Guedes family's showpiece estate for Casa Ferreirinha in the Alto Douro. It is dark, dense and still very young. With a strong mineral element and dry tannins, it has concentration as well as potential. The black plum fruits are still developing, still youthful. So give this impressive wine until 2020 before drinking.' - 93 Points, Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast
