Herdade do Esporão, Reserva White 2020, Alentejo, Portugal
Tasting Note: A Reserva Alentejo white blend filled with ripe orchard fruit that beautifully delivers.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of pineapple, ripe golden pear, tangerine, lemon citrus, lychee, white peach and blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied Alentejo white blend has medium-plus-intensity, orchard-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity ultimately completing with a medium-plus finish.
There are complex fruit flavors on the midpalate and delightful depth for a white wine.
A white blend with there-there.
