Esporão Reserve Red 2014

The first wine to be produced by Esporão in 1985. A classic wine made exclusively with grapes from estate fruit, it offers the consistency and personality typical of the unique terroir from whence it comes.
Only sustainable practices are used in the vineyards allowing nature to dictate what resources the fruit receives.
The grapes are hand-picked, vinified in small, temperature-controlled vats and, after being pressed, the wines age in American and French oak for 12 months.
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 every label each vintage.

Tasting Notes Spicy red berry fruits with subtle oak complexity. A full body, with a textured palate, well structured tannins. Solid and dense with great potential for bottle maturation.
Vinification/Maturation Each variety handpicked and vinified separately, fermented in stainless steel tanks with manual pumpovers, alongside open tanks with robotic plunging and temperature control (22º-25ºC). Membrane pressed and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Matured for 12 months in 60% American oak and 40% French oak barrels. Following bottling, the wine was aged for at least 8 months before market release.
