Delivery Details

Herdade do Esporao Private Selection Branco 2016 was created in 2001 with the intent to challenge the classic profile of great Alentejo wines. The maturity of the vineyard, the underestimated Semillon grape variety and the careful selection of barrel suppliers, have enabled this wine's solid, rich and complex character.

Grape: Sémillon
Spring was cooler and wetter than previous years – ideal weather conditions for fungal diseases to affect the vines, which meant greater care in the vineyard to avoid problems with mildew. The lower temperatures led to a longer period of vegetative growth and, despite the hotter weather from July onwards, the harvest began 10 days later than usual. The warmer conditions continued throughout the vintage, grape quality was excellent and, despite the heat, sugar levels remained normal, with slightly lower acidity.
Straw yellow in colour with aromas of white fruits and fresh grapefruit combined with hints of toasted oak, clove and white pepper. Rich, elegant and intense on the palate with a long, persistent finish.

By the creation of Esporao Private Selection White, they new the vineyards better and developed a more natural selection process of the finest plots at the Herdade. At the end of the 1990s, a winery was built exclusively for this wine, which became the focus of attention. In 2001, Esporao Private Selection White was produced, which was designed to challenge the classic profile of great wines from the Alentejo. 

Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
