The first wine to be produced by Esporão in 1985. A classic wine made exclusively with grapes from Herdade do Esporão, it offers the consistency and personality typical of the unique terroir from whence it comes. The viticulture employed involves integrated production methods which are based on rationalising natural resources and the use of natural regulation, thus contributing to sustainable agriculture that provides better-quality produce. The grapes for this wine are hand-picked. For the red, they are vinified in small, temperature-controlled vats and, after being pressed, the wines age in American and French oak for 12 months. In the case of the white, the grapes are picked in the early, cooler hours of the morning, vinified separately and partially aged for 6 months on the lees in French and American oak barrels. This is a wine for special occasions that combines the universal culture of wine and art, via the reproduction of original works of art on its labels. Deep, dark red, opaque centre. Focused dark berry fruits with toasty notes. Full bodied, textured palate, well structured tannins. Solid and dense with great potential for bottle maturation.
