Assobio and Murças Reserva at the Daily Meal

The Daily Meal‘s article, 25 New Whites & Reds to Welcome in 2017, highlights the choice of a variety of whites and reds from around  the world.

“The selection here includes an excellent group of spicier white wines — gewürztraminers from Alsace, a German riesling, and herbal sauvignon blancs from Marlborough — along with some interesting new wines from Beaujolais, among other delights.”

In this selection were also included some Esporão wines from Quinta dos Murças, in the Douro. Bellow, you can find their tasting notes.

Assobio White 2015: “A nice combination of tropical and mellow fruits; a tad murky with some light, dusty tannins.”

Assobio Red 2013: “Mellow cherry fruit, some chalkiness, moderate weight, good balance, and acidity.”

Murças Reserva 2011:Made from old vines with foot-treading of grapes, this is a spicy, full-bodied wine with red and dark fruits, lots of tannins, and a touch of tartness.”
