Herdade do Esporão Duas Castas 2013

Herdade do Esporão is located little more than 105 miles southeast of Lisbon, Portugal nearby the historical city of Reguengos de Monsaraz, in Alentejo. The Herdade do Esporão benefits from the Mediterranean-continental climate, with its intense sun exposure, reaching an average of 300 days per year. The climate is also characterised by notoriously warm summers and short and rainy winters, with significant diurnal thermic amplitudes.

Herdade do Esporão has a unique terroir, which derives from the combination of a very particular climate, which is regulated and attenuated by the large central lake, as well as different soil types, exposures and a long-standing winegrowing heritage of local grape varieties and others from other Portuguese and international winegrowing regions. Portugal is privileged to have the second largest number of native grape varieties, which exist nowhere else in the world and which make Portuguese wines so unique and original.

Duas Castas 2013 is a crisp white wine crystal clear in color, grassy and minerally notes on the palate, fresh long finish. The grape varietals are Gouveio and Antao Vaz. SRP $12

Vinha Da Defesa rosé 2014 Fresh with fruit aromas of red berries and cherry and a faint hint of mint notes, intense on the palate well balanced and elegant. The varietals are Syrah and Aragones. SRP $15
