Wine Spectator:

"A rich, full-throttle white, with a buttery essence to the baked apple, lemon meringue and dried mango flavors. Lengthens out midpalate, showing citrus zest notes. Finishes with a seductive smokiness. Sémillon. Drink now through 2020. 1,500 cases made." November 2016.

Wine Enthusiast:

"It's rare to find a Semillon in Portugal, let along the Alentejo. And yet the wine works beautifully. Wood aging has given it sophistication while the natural creamy texture of the grape is enhanced by the ripe yellow fruits that are lightly lifted by a herbal, citrus aftertaste. This wine could well age, so drink now or, better, keep until 2017." April 2016

Product Description:

The Semillon grapes used in this wine were planted on the Herdade dos Perdigões estate, which belongs to Esporão, in 1996, using northwest/southwest exposure in order to maximize fruit protection from extreme sunlight. Deep free draining clay soils predominate, ideal for balanced yields and the evolution of fresh aromatic grapes. Ripe fruits with tropical notes and well integrated discrete toasty french oak, complex.
