Wine of the Week – Esperão Quinta dos Murcas Reserva 2010 – red

The primary motivation at Esperão since it began has been an unconditional will to craft the best wines. That goal is at the core of what they do and of each and every wine. The Quinta dos Murcas Reserve 2010 – red is a beautiful example. Rich and special, it has become a hallmark of the Douro where it was conceived. Taut, with great minerality, it reflects its region with hillsides covered in grapes. Bursting with flavor, aged in oak barrels, this is a wine that speaks out loudly as you sip it, declaring: “Pay attention!”

Wine of the Week – Esperão Private Selection 2009 Alentejo

This is a wine you will sip, swoosh in your mouth, swallow and exclaim “Yes!” Estate grown grapes are from 17 year-old vines, rich and ripe, and are matured in stainless steel tanks and new French and American oak barrels for six months. Enjoy fruit flavors such as tangerine and apricot along with minerality – an excellent balance that won 90 points from Wine Enthusiast. http://www.esporao.com/en/wines/herdade-do-esporao/reserva/white/
