10/06/2012 – Esporão, Arco Alentejo Tinto 2010

Esporao, Arco Alentejo Tinto 2010, Portugal
The Esporao winery in the Alentejo region of southern Portugal is one of the country’s top estates, under the guidance of long-time Australian winemaker David Baverstock. This blend of Aragonez, Touriga Nacional and Shiraz has a powerful, fruity style with lots of plummy fruit depth, spice and a hint of cool, fresh cherry. It is a savoury wine, with masses of ripe fruit but also a nice chewiness, chunky rustic tannins and loads of personality. Not a silky-smooth and sophisticated wine, but authentic, delicious and a very good buy on offer. Watch the video for more details and food-matching suggestions. 9.49, Waitrose but on offer June 2012 at 7.49. See all UK stockists on .
