Esporão Reserva Branco

Esporão Reserva Branco

€25.95
 
Esporão Reserva Branco is a white wine made with the Antão Vaz, Sémillon, Arinto and Roupeiro varieties. Herdade de Esporão is one of the largest wineries in Portugal with a wide-spread reputation. Located in the Alentejo sub-region, this is an extraordinary estate stretching over more than 1,200 hectares with rivers, vineyards, olive trees and a spectacular central lake that regulates high temperatures during the day. 550 hectares are planted with the area’s rich native varieties that allow the team to produce a wide range of wines. Esporão Reserva Branco comes from vineyards with an average age of 18 years old. These strains are planted in granite and shale soils, enjoying many hours of sun whilst also enjoying the balance brought by the influence of the large central lake. The harvest is carried out manually at the optimum moment of ripeness. This was one of the first wines produced by Esporão in 1985 contributing decisively to characterize the rich and expressive profile of the best Alentejo white wines. Crystal clear, straw colour with green hues. White stone fruits with delicate spice, toast and mineral notes. Creamy palate with volume and structure. Well balanced, nice fruit depth, long and complex finish.
