Herdade do Esporão 2010 Sparkling White Wine
Alentejo, Portugal

Made in the classic method, this dry Espumante is a great expression of its region, Alentejo in Portugal. The white Portuguese grape varieties it is made of, Antão Vaz and Verdelho, are known to produce dry wines. A biscuit-y bouquet yields to a ripe and intense palate, with a touch of citrus and a rich finish. Enjoy it now or age it for a couple more years.
