Monte Velho Red 2013, Magnum
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. The typically Mediterranean landscape consists of rolling plains that occupy a total area of over 1,800 hectares, 450 hectares of which are vineyards and around 80 hectares of olive groves.
A wine for all occasions. The profile is balanced and gastronomic, highlighting the best aromas and flavours of Alentejo grapes. Destemming, crushing, fermentation in stainless steel tanks with temperature control, membrane pressing, controlled malolactic fermentation, ageing in stainless steel tanks and american oak barrels for 6 months prior to blending and bottling.
Clear deep ruby colour. Berry fruit aromas with some complex subtle toasty notes. Elegant palate with good depth of fruit and a fine tannic structure.
