We’ve chosen a couple of wonderful wines from Portugal as our Autumn Wine of the Moment. Both from our wine suppliers http://www.libertywine.co.uk
Our white is a the Papa Figos Douro Branco, Casa Ferreirinha 2016 from Douro. Lemon yellow in colour with golden tints. The wine is aromatic with prominent floral notes, tropical fruit and herbaceous qualities. On the palate it is well structured with a subtle minerality and a long, persistent finish.
The red is the Papa Figos Douro Tinto, Casa Ferreirinha 2015 from the Tinto region. Deep ruby red in colour with violet nuances. It has a very intense aroma, dominated by floral notes of violet and rock rose, balsamic aromas of resin and cedar and well ripened red and black fruit. On the palate, it has a good volume, well integrated acidity, high quality tannins and black and red fruit notes. It’s finish is elegant and harmonious.
