WW 88
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
So you want to be an Old World wine drinker, but you began life in some urban enclave in the USA, what do you do? Pick up a bottle or two of the 2013 Casa Ferreirinha Esteva, this wine clearly plays its traditional flavors into the New World order of drinking wine. Medium deep ruby color; slightly edgy red fruit and mineral notes in the nose; medium bodied, fine elegance on the palate, yet full of fine richness; dry, medium acidity, well balanced; serious, yet easy-to-like red fruit flavors, a note of savor in the background; medium finish, fine and smooth in the aftertaste. (Tasted: November 24, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

Ferreira is the only Port wine company founded by a family of Douro wine growers and is located in the Upper Douro Region which is the home of Port wine. Owned by the Guedes family, the largest wine producing family in Portugal, Ferreira is the best-selling Port in Portugal.

Portugal

View all wine

Best known for flavorful fortified wines but also producing excellent dry wines, Portugal is unique in that it relies almost exclusively on its many indigenous grape varieties. Bordering Spain to the west on the Iberian Peninsula, this is a land where tradition reigns supreme, perhaps due in part to its relative geographical and, for much of the 20th century, political isolation. Portugal is a long and narrow country, which makes for considerable diversity in climate and wine styles, with milder weather in the north and significantly more rainfall near the coast. With the exception of Port, most Portuguese wines have struggled to garner attention in the international marketplace, perhaps due to the unfamiliar and difficult to pronounce nature of most of its grape varieties and terminology, which means that there are many excellent values to be discovered here by the adventurous consumer. The country is perhaps better known for being the world’s leader in cork production than for its wine.

Port, made in the Douro Valley, is the fortified wine for which Portugal is most famous. The same region also produces full-bodied dry wines made from the same set of grape varieties, which include Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz (Spain’s Tempranillo). The nation’s other important fortified wine, Madeira, is produced on the eponymous island off the North African coast. Other dry wines of the mainland include the tart, slightly effervescent Vinho Verde of the north, the bright, elegant reds and whites of the Dão, and the bold, jammy reds of the Alentejo.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
