Herdade do Esporao
Esporão Colheita White Organic 2021, Herdade do Esporão
Portugal / Alentejo
Andy's Tasting Notes
Deliciously rich, tropical fruit mingled with grapefruit and lime, complemented by a smooth creamy character imparted by lees ageing.
Planted on granite/schist soils which add an interesting and refreshing mineral overtone.
All in all, a rounded and satisfying white of great character and style. Certainly a bit more going on than white Burgundy or Rhone at this price level.
