Esteva is an attractive and elegant Douro red wine that allies character and versatility to drinkability, and is ideal for everyday consumption. Esteva is part of the celebrated Casa Ferreirinha wine range, the brand renowned as the leading producer of superior Douro wines and a global reference for the region.
It was created at Quinta do Seixo, where it is mostly vinified even today, from grapes selected from our wine estates and the surrounding higher altitude areas. After soft-crushing and destemming, the grapes are transferred to stainless steel tanks, where alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures takes place.
Vibrant ruby colour. The wine shows fine aromatic intensity, with stand-out notes of red fruits, floral notes of rock rose and slightly mentholated balsamic aromas, such as heather. The red fruit notes and a floral touch appear again in the mouth. Tannins are present but very polished and combined with a well integrated acidity. Its finish is elegant.
