Esporão, Monte Velho White 2019, Vinho Regional Alentejano, Portugal
Tasting Note: The type of versatile, sunshine-filled white-blend that pairs with a multiplicity of meals or could be enjoyed on its own by the glass.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of golden apple, lemon-citrus peel, green pear, white nectarine and blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied white blend has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose along with pineapple supported by medium acidity and completing with a medium-plus-finish.
Florality and tropical fruit contribute to bright notes across the midpalate.

Tasting Note: This label design is inspired by the traditional Reguengos de Monsaraz’s ‘Mantas’ (rugs or blankets) patterns. They are part of the cultural identity of the region where this handcraft has been made for centuries. Also following the region’s winemaking tradition, its diversity of grape varieties and vinification techniques, this wine reveals the typical character of the region: rich aromas, soft palate and an excellent gastronomic aptitude. Antão Vaz 40%, Roupeiro 40%, Perrum 20%.
