Esporão, Arco Alentejo Tinto 2010, Portugal
The Esporão winery in the Alentejo region of southern Portugal is one of the country's top estates, under the guidance of long-time Australian winemaker David Baverstock. This blend of
Aragonez, Touriga Nacional and Shiraz has a powerful, fruity style with lots of plummy fruit depth, spice and a hint of cool, fresh cherry. It is a savoury wine, with masses of ripe fruit
but also a nice chewiness, chunky rustic tannins and loads of personality. Not a silky-smooth and sophisticated wine, but authentic, delicious and a very good buy on offer. Watch the video for
more details and food-matching suggestions. £9.49, Waitrose but on offer June 2012 at £7.49. See all UK stockists on wine-searcher.
