The first wine to be produced by Esporão in 1985, this is a classic Portuguese red made exclusively with grapes from Herdade do Esporão. Indeed, it's a wine for special occasions that combines the universal culture of wine and art, via the reproduction of original works of art on its labels. The grapes for this blend of Alicante Bouschet, Aragonez, Trincadeira, Cabernet Sauvignon are sustainably grown and hand-picked, and aged in American and French oak for 12 months. On the nose, aromas of dark plum preservatives, fresh minty and spicy notes with hints of clove and cocoa. The wine is balanced on the palate, with velvety tannins full of character, in harmony with the fruit that is the protagonist in an intense and elegant finish. — 3 months ago
Another "Ninfa". The first one was from 2013. This one is fresh and light. Red fruits (nose): a strawberry, a cherry. Some earthy notes, a touch of chocolate. High and pleasant acidity. — 5 months ago

Reminiscent of our Portugal adventures. Travessia Tinto is from one of Portugal's oldest wine regions. Close to Lisbon and shaped by the Tagus River, most vines in the region are still hand-harvested by local women from surrounding villages.
Made from a blend of two outstanding Portuguese grapes, Touriga Nacional and Aragonez Tempranillo, Travessia is the perfect wine for those who love dry reds from warm areas (think Napa Cabs). Touriga Nacional is a full-bodied red wine. This lesser known and often overlooked grape variety is most commonly used as a blending grape in Port wine and has only recently seen use in making a red wine blends. For those who love bold red wines, Touriga Nacional offers excellent depth of flavor at a ridiculously good value.
Aragonez Tempranillo grapes have been grown for centuries in the Alentejo region. The grape has delicate aromas of pepper and berries. Once blended with the Touriga Nacional, the final product has a sumptuous garnet color with aromas & flavors of ripe red fruits. This wine is full-bodied with a long finish. — 6 months ago
