Herdade do Esporao Reserva Branco 2011, Portugal

From the Alentejo region of Portugal comes this refreshing blend of Antao Vaz, Arinto, Roupeiro & Semillon grapes, fermented in stainless steel and American oak barrels where it's aged on the lees for 6 months before bottling.

Clear, pale, yellow/green colors tint the glass, with bold aromas of citrus and summer fruits, along with hints of toasted oak. The palate shows clean acidity and balance, with fruity ripeness contrasting a buttery creaminess and hints of flint and a clean fresh finish.
