Herdade do Esporão, Colheita 2020, Vinho Regional Alentejano, Portugal
Tasting Note: A white blend from Portugal that is filled with ripe orchard fruit and richness.
Medium-intensity gold in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of pineapple, peach stone fruit, golden apple, pear, lemon citrus and blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied white blend has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a bright, medium finish.
There is midpalate complexity and depth to the white blend.
A versatile pairing partner at an attractive price point.

Bottle Note: Wine made with organic grapes grown in Esporão’s estate. Partially aged in tulip shaped tanks. Herdade do Esporão, located near Regeungos de Monsaraz, maintains its boundaries unchanged since 1267. Our viticulture results in the production of high quality grapes. Innovation tulip shaped porous tanks, in our new “Lagares” 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.
