Casa Ferreirinha: Casa Ferreirinha is one of the most iconic and historic wine producers in Portugal. It is part of the Sogrape Vinhos group and has been a key player in the Douro wine region for over 250 years. Douro Region: Casa Ferreirinha is located in the Douro Valley, one of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world. The region is famous for its terraced vineyards along the Douro River and is known for producing high-quality wines, particularly Port wine. Barca-Velha: Barca-Velha is Casa Ferreirinha's flagship wine and is considered one of Portugal's most prestigious and collectible wines. It was first produced in 1952 and is made in exceptional vintages from a blend of traditional Portuguese grape varieties. 2011 Vintage: The 2011 vintage was generally considered excellent in the Douro Valley. Weather conditions during the growing season contribute to the character of the wines produced in a particular year. Limited Production: Barca-Velha is produced in limited quantities, and each vintage is highly sought after by collectors and wine enthusiasts. The limited production adds to the wine's exclusivity and prestige. Blend of Grape Varieties: Barca-Velha is typically a blend of several Portuguese grape varieties. The specific blend can vary from vintage to vintage and often includes indigenous grapes such as Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, and Tinto Cão. Aging Potential: Barca-Velha wines are known for their exceptional aging potential. They are often released when they are approachable but have the structure to evolve and improve with many years of cellar aging. Tasting Notes: Barca-Velha wines are characterized by their deep color, complex aromas of dark fruits, floral notes, and spice, as well as a robust and well-structured palate. The wines often showcase the unique terroir of the Douro Valley. Cork Closure: Fine wines like Barca-Velha are typically sealed with cork closures. The choice of cork reflects the tradition and premium quality associated with these wines.
