The Herdade do Esporão estate is located in the heart of the Alentejo, in Reguengos de Monsaraz. The estate covers over 1,500 hectares of prime land in this unique terroir in southern Portugal. The boundaries of the estate were established in 1267 and have remained virtually unaltered since then, making Herdade do Esporão one of the oldest estates in Europe.
The 2010 Herdade do Esporão Alentejo Reserva brings lots of tasty dark plums and cherries along with toasty oak, dark chocolate and even some smoke and spices. This is well rounded, supported by a silky structure and a firm finish. (Drink 2012-2018) - June, 2012. (JD)
