Herdade do Esporão Alicante Bouschet 2012 Portuguese Wine 75cl
Herdade do Esporão’s Alicante Bouchet originates from Vinha das Palmeiras, at Herdade dos Perdigões, where Alicante Bouschet was first planted 10 years ago. It is only made in exceptional years and the result of intense experimentation and collaboration between Herdade do Esporão’s winemaking and viticulture teams. This involves the vinification of small blends of the same grape variety from different plots, in which the final goal is to understand and enhance the character of each grape associated with the type of soil and microclimate where it is grown.
The 2012 harvest was characterised by a rainy winter followed by a long and mild summer. These cooler summer temperatures allowed for ideal grape maturation conditions.Read more...
