Esporão, Colheita 2021, Vinho Regional Alentejano, Portugal
Tasting Note: A Portuguese white blend with powerful aromatics, body and a long finish.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of pineapple, white peach, golden apple and orange zest with a hint of guava.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied white blend has medium-plus-intensity, orchard-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a long, lemon-citrus-infused finish.
There are some notes of complexity and roundness along the midpalate.
A solid white blend.

Bottle Note: Wine made with organic grapes grown at Esporão estate. Partigally aged in tulip shaped tanks. Herdade do Esporão, located near Reguengos de Monsaraz, maintains its boundaries unchanged since 1267. Our viticulture results in the production of high-quality grapes. Innovative tulip shaped porous tanks, in our new “Lagres” winery, preserve the principal characteristics of the wines made from these vineyards. Since 1985, Esporão, maintains its commitment to produce the finest wines that nature provides, in the most responsible and inspiring way possible.
