Really great value for such a rich classy white: the first wine made by Esporão back in 1985. This vintage is a blend of Arinto, Antão Vaz and Roupiero from 18 year-old- estate vines, partially aged on less for six months in a mix of French and US oak and tank. Forward aromas of ripe apricot and orange blossom lead on to a weighty, generous palate, balanced by oak spice, refreshing acidity and a long, tangy marmalade finish.
