Herdade Do Esporão Alentejo White Reserva NV

Member Review by ryanopaz:

19% Deep burgundy in color. The nose shows wood, roasted nuts and mineral nuts, very port like. Very sweet in the mouth with a strong acidity that helps to keep it fresh. Creamy flavors of toast, plum, chocolate, and raisens. Fun after dinner wine. 3.5/5 [NR]

In the heart of Alentejo region, 180 Km east of Lisbon, in Reguengos de Monsaraz, the Herdade do Esporão was aquired by Finagra with the main porpuse of producing wines of great quality. From 1975 until 1979, the Herdade do Esporão was occupied during the revolutionary and agricultural periods. Only after this period Finagra was allowed to proceed the winery project. Our modern cellars were built in 1987. A new stage of Finagra project was acomplished. In 1989 the first wine "Esporão" was considered one of the best Portuguese wines and three years later the brand "Monte Velho" was launched. In 1995, after our brands were considered among the best ones, new investments were made. A new area of vineyard was planted and the existent was completely renovated. A dam with 4.000.000 m3 capacity was built, feeding a drip irrigation system that covers all the vineyard. The purchase of Perdigões Estate, with 180 ha of vineyards, the expansion of the cellar and the construction of the wine tourism complex are some of the most recent investments of this dinamic company developing the "Herdade do Esporão".

Rubby red in color, fresh ripe berry aromas and a soft, well balanced fruity palate. Try with poultry, light pastas, grilled or baked fish. Great with burgers.

I didn't enjoy this wine. I was looking for a good value Portuguese wine but it can be hit or miss.

I tried it in Karlsruhe, Germany at Mexician restaurant. It was flavorful wine. I enjoyed drinking it with my vegetarian enchilada dish.

Very drinkable wine, with some interesting notes. Certainly worth a try at the $7.35 that the LCBO charges.

A deep ruby color, lifted red berry fruit aromatics, and a soft, elegant, well balanced palate, with good depth of ripe fruit and fine supportive tannins.
