Esporao Private Selection Branco, 2016
Esporao Private Selection Branco, 2016
Esporao Private Selection Branco, 2016

– Private Selection White was created in 2001 with a desire to challenge the classic profile of great Alentejo white wines. To achieve this, we decided to base the wine on the underated Semillon variety and the use of new French oak barrels for fermentation and maturation. With growing the vineyard maturity and a careful selection of barrel suppliers the solid, rich and complex style of this wine has been reinforced over the years

– The Semillon grapes used in this wine were planted on the Herdade dos Perdigões estate, which belongs to Esporão, in 1996, using northwest/southwest exposure in order to maximize fruit protection from extreme sunlight.

Colour

Crystal clear straw.

Aroma

Ripe fruits with tropical notes and well integrated discrete toasty french oak, complex.

Palate

Rich and unctuous, with elegance and balance, long and persistent.

Esporao Private Selection, Garrafeira Tinto, 2012

– Esporão Private Selection Red is a continuation of the Esporão Garrafeira Tinto, first launched in 1987. Initially it was a choice of the best barrels of Esporão Reserva and, over time, we understood our vineyards better, naturally evolving to a selection of the best fields of our Estate. At the end of the 90s we built an exclusive winery for him, becoming the center of our attention. The Private Selection is our conception of a classic Red wine Alentejo wine: intense and rich but without exaggeration, balanced in the mouth but with good potential of guard. In the nose it is more tense than usual, with suggestions of blue fruit and graphite, well wrapped in notes of toast and spices. In the palate it shows firmness, quite freshness, generous but well fused tannins, great structure and elegance. (Herdade do Esporão)

“Still young and showing fresh fruitiness, this wine needs time to calm down and broaden out. Made of four classic varieties in the Esporão vineyard, it’s dense, stalky and still full of tannins. Give this wine until 2016.”

– One of a pair of amphora fermented and aged wines, this is made from the Moreto grape commonly found in Alentejo blends but rarely found by itself. This dark-colored wine is a departure for the grape, bringing out reserves of richness. The soft tannins and almost sweet character are more typical and result in a full wine that is ready to drink.
