Tasting Set Includes:
- Herdade Do Esporao Reserva White
Crystal clear, light straw color with green hues. Grapefruit and white peach aromas with subtle toasty oak integration, fresh spicy and herbal notes. Creamy, complex and balanced palate with elegant fruit and minerality, intense and persistent finish.
- Prats & Symington Prazo de Roriz
The Prazo de Roriz is characterized particularly by red fruit flavours — raspberries and cherries and the Quinta de Roriz terroir provides a distinctive minerality and appealing peppery spice. The Quinta da Perdiz vineyard also provides grapes for the Prazo de Roriz. The wine is made for drinking young, but with the potential for developing in bottle for several years.
- Silk and Spice Red Blend
This easy drinking red wine is a modern expression of the spices discovered on the 'Spice Route' by Portuguese explorers in 1498. These explorers opened up the Western world to exciting new flavors such as nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and pepper. The wine has extraordinary, rich flavors born of Portugal’s indigenous grapes and unique terrain. Intense, deep ruby color, with a bright red rim. The predominant flavors are ripe, cooked black fruits. Sweet notes of vanilla and hints of mocha. The first impression in the mouth is rich and full. Excellent balance of tannins and acidity, with a long, smooth finish.
