Esporao Description Classic wine obtained solely from our grapes, in organic production. The diversity of Herdade do Esporão, together with the different characteristics of the grape varieties, the soils, the maturity of the vines and the people who consistently make this wine over the years, result in a rich, intense, but always harmonious wine.

Soil Granite and shale with a clay-loam structure.

Vinification/Aging Destemming, thermal shock, skin maceration, pressing, static decantation of the must, fermentation at controlled temperatures: 75% in stainless steel vats and 25% in new American and French oak barrels. Aged for 6 months in stainless steel vats and new oak barrels, on fine lees. Esporão Reserva was the first wine produced by Esporão, in 1985. It was born from our desire to produce the best wines in Alentejo. Over the years, it has been a wine that has led us to innovate, to grow, to look back to our origins, to be concerned with nature and to see beyond. We have adopted sustainable agricultural practices, most recently we converted all our vineyards to organic farming, built new wineries and traveled to other markets, taking Alentejo and Portugal to the world. Art accompanies Esporão Reserva from the very beginning. Every year we invite a new artist to illustrate our labels and each work tells a story that is completed inside.

Aroma Citrus notes with a predominance of mandarin and lemon, mint impressions complemented with white pepper and nutmeg.

Taste Elegant and harmonious, balanced between fruit and spices. An intense and persistent finish.

92 Points Wine Enthusiast – “This wine has intense brightness to sustain the beautifully clear fruit. Acidity and a toasty edge show well. Drink from 2024. Organic.”
