Esporão Colheita Red
A classic Portuguese red blend from Alentejo, located in the south of the maritime country. Featuring Touring Nacional, Alicante Bouschet, Cabernet, Aragones, and Touriga Franca, this wine certainly has some muscle, but not at the sacrifice of freshness. The wine is fermented and aged in concrete vessels, allowing the fruit profile to stay ripe, and the structure youthful. Portuguese wine is truly a hidden gem in terms of its price point, and the quality of what’s being made. Dark fruit, a bit of jam, and some herbaceousness. Pair me with heartier springtime fare.
