Esporão launches the new varietal 4 Castas vintage

The 2016 vintage of the varietal Esporão 4 Castas is now available on the national market. This wine is a reflection of grape varieties with unique characteristics, which are well adapted to their place of origin. Added to natural factors – such as geology, topology and climate -, is the interpretation and art of the oenology team, led by David Baverstock. The selected varieties Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Syrah and Petit Verdot, give 4 Castas 2016 complexity, texture and intensity.

4 Castas 2016 marks the oenologists’ choice of the varieties that best complemented eachother that year. Touriga Nacional brings floral touches and Touriga Franca adds black berries, in a complex and elegant combination, complemented by notes of jam and some spiciness reminiscent of black pepper. On the palate, Touriga Franca lends texture, while Syrah offers firmness and structure, complemented by the long and intense finish provided by Petit Verdot.
