Monte Velho Tinto 2012

Winery: Herdade do Esporão
Grape Varieties: Aragones (Tempranillo), Trincadeira, Touriga Nacional and Syrah
Harvest: 2012
Region: Alentejo
Colour/Condition: Intense ruby colour.
Aroma: Subtle aroma of blue and red berry fruits with slight tar and tobacco
notes. This is a clean, well balanced wine that has overt blue and red berry fruit aromas. The addition of Touriga Nacional to the blend has had a profound influence on the lifted spice and blue fruit character of the wine.
Palate: The palate has an easy richness and juiciness. There are some savoury tones that combine with the very fine tannins to produce a long and complex finish.
