Herdade do Esporao
Pé Branco 2021, Herdade do Esporão
Portugal / Alentejo
Andy's Tasting Notes
Excellent value and character showing how far modern Portuguese white wine has come. Fresh, crisp and dry with citrus and peach fruit. Delicately floral and aromatic – plenty of flavour and substance for its modest price tag.
Grape varieties – Antão Vaz, Arinto, Perrum
Price per bottle £8.30
