For me, the challenge was making a wine with the same quality as the rest of the portfolio, especially Esporão Reserva and that, at the same time, was completely different, more direct. It has an earthier personality, which is why we didn’t use oak, choosing to vinify the wine in tulip-shaped concrete vats, which help maintain its essential character.
With the methods we have implemented, the grapes arriving at the winery are top quality, and our work is to preserve that quality, not to spoil the work that has been done until then and, via the wine, to transmit that to people.
Looking at the wine’s profile, we find these characteristics, the more direct, purer fruit. A rich wine without too much “make -up”. It’s a clean wine that reflects the land it comes from».
