VITICULTURE

From 12-year old organic vineyards grown at Herdade do Esporão estate, planted on granite/schist soil, with loamy clay structure.

WINEMAKING

The grapes were partially fermented in concrete tanks. After fermentation, the wine was left on the fine lees for 4 months, creating a unique typo of micro-oxygenation that respects and enhances the wine’s character.

OAK TREATMENT

None

TASTING NOTE

Aromas of citrus, particularly fresh grapefruit, with some tropical fruit and notes of green leaf. Complex and intense palate with slightly creamy texture, balanced by fresh, rich and persistent finish.
