Touriga Nacional, Aragonez, Touriga Franca, Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante Bouschet
Alcohol Content (%)
This wine has a clear, concentrated ruby color. Notes of fresh red fruit, where the plum predominates, and the blueberry, wrapped in vegetable notes. In the mouth the density and body of the Touriga Franca, based on the structure and acidity of the Cabernet Sauvignon, is evident. The set is creamy and vibrant, with a persistent yet elegant finish.
HERDADE DO ESPIRÃO - 750 YEARS OF HISTORY
The story begins in 1267, when the geographical boundaries of the Homestead of the Esporão (initially Defense of the Esporão) were defined and until today they remain practically unchanged. Soeiro Rodrigues, judge of the city of Évora, was one of the first owners, followed by the master of Santiago Rodrigues de Vasconcelos, Morgado D. Álvaro Mendes de Vasconcelos and the counts of Alcáçovas.
During this time, in the center of the Herdade do Esporão, three historical monuments were erected: the Tower of the Esporão, the Arch of the Esporão and the Hermitage of Nossa Senhora dos Remédios, the latter linked to an intense and devout popular cult in the region. The tower of the Esporão, symbol of affirmation in the society and exhibition of military power, is one of the most important towers in the illustration of the transition from the medieval age to the modern age in Portugal.
