Quatro Castas 2014

Our Wine of the Month is...



The award winning 'Outstanding' Quatro Castas
by Herdade do Esporão 2014



For the May Issue of Decanter, the DO Alentejo reds panel tasted 81 wines, only five of which were given the maximum “outstanding” rating, one of those being Esporão 4 Castas 2014.


Esporão also picked up a “Highly Recommended” for its Esporão Private Selection Red 2011, while Monte Velho Red 2014 and Esporão Reserva Red 2013 comes top of the “Recommended” list. 


 

The Quatro Castas 2014 is an equal blend of Touriga Franca, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon & Alicante Bouschet.
An annual challenge for the winemakers to find four grape varieties from that harvest which combine to show a complex and well balanced wine with distinctive character and flavour.



Full of exuberant red berry fruit aromas from the Touriga Franca, backed by mocha notes from the Syrah. A dense and compact palate with bright fruit and well integrated toasty oak.
A wine of great structure and a long finish.
