Esporão Alandra Tinto, Alentejo

Moreto, Castelão and Trincadeira grapes are employed to make this fruit-driven wine; the first and third can be used in the production of port – called Tinta Francisca and Tinta Amarella in the Douro. After de-stemming and crushing, the grapes are fermented at quite a high temperature and allowed to go through a malolactic fermentation with no oak ageing. Shows fresh, berry aromas on the nose and soft tannins on the finish.
