2017 Herdade do Esporão "Esporão" Reserva Branco Alentejo

SKU #1422755 92 points Decanter

 Really great value for such a rich, classy white: the first wine made by Esporão back in 1985. This vintage is a blend of Arinto, Antão Vaz and Roupeiro from 18-year-old estate vines, partially aged on lees for six months in a mix of French and US oak and tank. Forward aromas of ripe apricot and orange blossom lead on to a weighty, generous palate, balanced by oak spice, refreshing acidity and a long, tangy marmalade finish. (TG)  (2/2019)

90 points Wine Spectator

 This full-bodied white shows focus, with a vanilla cream undertone marking the apple filling, lemon curd and peach notes, edged with hints of spice and smoke. Offers a long, mineral-laced finish. (GS)  (11/2018)

Country:

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds.
