Crystalline appearance, with greenish reflections. The presence of citrus, in the aroma, highlighting the lemon, white fruit and green leaves. The palate is intense and persistent and its creamy texture offering a pure, rich and fresh finish.
Herdade do Esporão is home to a unique terroir that is the result of an alliance of a very particular climate, regulated and softened by the great central lake, with different types of soil, exhibitions and the vast wine heritage of native castes, castes from other wine regions and castes. The typically Mediterranean landscape is composed of smooth undulating plains that occupy a little more than 1,800 hectares of total area, 450 hectares of which are occupied with vines and about 80 hectares occupied with olive groves. Olive oil with a smooth and harmonious profile, with a good balance of the fruity aromas typical of the Alentejo olives.
The grapes, which were harvested on 3rd October, were partially fermented in concrete tanks. After fermentation, the wine was left on fine lees for 4 months, allowing for a unique type of micro-oxidation that respects and enhances the character of this wine.
Crystalline, straw-like with a greenish tinge colour. Citrus, particularly lemon, with hints of white fruit and green leaf aromas. Complex and slightly creamy, pure, rich, fresh with an intense and very persistent finish.
