Esporão Syrah - Red Wine
Producer Notes 2012
These wines are only produced in exceptional years, from unique plots at Herdade do Esporão, which express the true potential and original character of the individual grape variety.
Temperature controlled fermentation (28ºC) in small stainless steel tanks.12 months spent in American oak barrels, followed by 18 months in the bottle before release onto the market.
This harvest was characterized by a rainy winter followed by a long and mild summer. These cooler summer temperatures allowed for ideal grape maturation conditions.
Lifted red berry fruits aroma with notes of toast and mocha. Creamy fruit palate, well textured, mature tannins, persistent finish.
