Description

What am I: Espera Castelão

 

Espera Wines is a small, family-run project on just 3 hectares, located in the Alcobaça region of Lisbon, a historic area with traditions that stem from the legacy left by the Cistercian monks.

 

This wine expresses the typical freshness and minerality of this region’s wines, and also the main characteristics of the Castelão grape variety. Made with a fine selection of the best Castelão, the parcel has an eastern exposition and clay-limestone soils.

 

Manually harvested in 15kg boxes. Grapes are destemmed, then followed by spontaneous fermentation in 1000Kg containers. Fermentation takes place without temperature control for 4 days, ending in stainless steel tanks. It is then aged in used French oak barrels (500 and 700L) for 12 months,
