A blend of native varietals Antao Vaz, Roupeiro, and Arinto all vinified separately and blended together. 50% of the wine is fermented in French oak barrels and aged for 6 months and 50% is stainless steel fermented then blended. Aromatic nose of ripe peach, orange blossoms, tropical notes of banana's and cream. Medium to full bodied, juicy acidity, medium + alcohol 13.5% abv, well balanced and integrated oak leading to a zippy fat finish. The palate has underlying minerality and ripe stone fruit characteristics. If someone poured this for me and told me it was chardonnay I would certainly be fooled though not the rich buttery oaky California Chard, I would have guessed this a dead ringer for good quality white Burgundy. This wine has great acidity considering its grown in Southern Portugal and it does not undergo any malolactic fermentation. This is certainly an eye opening wine and again proves that Portugal is full of wonderful surprises. 4/5

Intense garnet color, strong aromas of spices and red fruits wrapped in vanilla and chocolate notes. On the palate, it is elegant and long with layers of ripe fruit over strong tannins that provide a very persistent finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

The exceptional conditions of light and the hot sun of Alentejo, together with the humid Atlantic breezes blowing from Northwest, combined with the unique schistous and vulcanic nature of the soil constitute the origin for the outstanding character of the wines from 'ESPORAO' state. Color: Deep red colour. Aroma: Complex aroma of ripe fruits and vanilla. Palate: Rich, flavoursome palate, good depth of fruit, well structture wuth robust tannins. Aragones, Trincadeira, Cabernet Sauvignon and Alicante Bouschet.
