Wine Details

Esporão Colheita Red Organic 2022 6x75cl


Notes of ripe red fruits and some blackberry jam, with slightly herbaceous and spicy notes. The palate is fresh and balanced, with a silky and appealing texture, where ripe fruit predominates on the elegant and persistent finish.


From 14-year old organic vineyards grown at Herdade do Esporão estate, planted on granite/schist soil, with loamy clay structure.


The 2022 agricultural year was a dry year. During the vegetative rest period (autumn-winter) and spring, there were mild temperatures and low precipitation values. In the vineyard, bud break was early, as in the previous year, and moderate temperatures s anticipated vegetative development. The very high temperatures and the lack of water in the summer contributed to distant maturation between the varieties, resulting in a precision harvest with a special focus on the expression of each variety.


Co-fermentation of the grapes began in the wine presses, with foot treading at controlled temperatures (22 to 25°C), and finishing in concrete tanks. Following malolactic fermentation, ageing took place in the same concrete tanks for 6 months. The unique micro oxygenation conditions provided by this type of tank aim to preserve the wine's character.
