Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Esporão 2 Castas is a white wine made with the Roupeiro and Viosinho varieties produced by Esporão on their DOP Alentejo estate.

Known as one Portugal’s great wineries, Herdade do Esporão is located on a spectacular estate in the heart of Alentejo (Portugal). Dating back to 1267, it is the perfect natural environment to produce a wide range of wines with a very personal touch. When the winery was built in 1985, it was designed to work almost exclusively with the help of gravity. From then on, Esporão dedicated themselves fully to making structured, elegant wines using the region’s native varieties.

Esporão 2 Castas comes from a unique landscape. 1200 hectares of land where vineyards, olive trees, rivers and a large central lake live together in harmony. 550 hectares are planted with vineyards. These are strains between 15 and 40 years old, planted in rock and granite soil. They use traditional agriculture and the harvest is manual.

When the Esporão 2 Castas harvest reaches the winery, the varieties are vinified separately. Firstly, it is pressed moderately using pneumatic presses, then the must is decanted and fermentation begins in stainless steel tanks at 14°C. Finally, it ages on fine lees for a while.

Esporão 2 Castas 2016 is the result of Esporão’s winemaking challenge to find the perfect balance between two very different but compatible varieties. A wine with body and finesse.
