Herdade Do Esporao Branco Reserva 2009

Herdade Do Esporao Branco Reserva 750ML 2009      
Sku: 17554

 Wine Advocate 89 points (Jun 2011)
The 2009 Reserva Branco is a blend of 40% Arinto, with Roupeiro and Antao Vaz equally dividing the rest. This bottling handles its oak rather well - not, perhaps, that it will thrill true oak-a-phobes. It shouldn’t bother others, though, and it shows some crispness as the acidity (thanks to the Arinto?) pops through and gives the wine some grip, character and definition. I was surprised, but gratified, to see after an hour’s air or so, a touch of lemon on the finish. This also seems fresh and surprisingly refreshing for an oak-aged wine, with quite a lot of charm as well as ripe fruit. This is quite nice, flavorful, but very well balanced, and nicely priced, too. Drink now-2014.

Technical notes
Antao Vaz, Arinto, Roupeiro, Semillon.
