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, vinified in small, temperature-controlled vats and aged 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 its labels. 2017: Intense ruby red. Hints of wild berries and blueberry fruit jam, enveloped in coffee, black pepper and a faint toasted aroma from the keg. In the mouth, it is intense and dense, but with robust tannins, affording it structure and complexity and suggesting good potential for aging in the bottle.
