A Pamela of a Wine

Herdade do Esporão, Esporão Reserva 2007
Alentejo, Portugal
Made from the local varieties Antão Vaz, Roupeiro and Arinto. At first there is a grapefruit-like freshness..but as the wine opens...peaches, melons...Pamela Anderson..oops...sorry mind is wandering...not that I am a fan of her..or hers in this case..and she probably doesn't know how to hold a wine glass..she maybe just balances the vessel on one of them as she cooks for her 'man'...anyway...where were we?...ah yes...melons

Aged in new American oak...which is more than we can say for Pamela...this is sweet & juicy without ever starting to cloy as there is excellent acidity in there. Plenty of cream..similar to Pamela.... and quite complex for the price..which she isn't. Sorry Pammy...I promise to write a more positive post about you in the future. fingers want to type a comment here...but this is a family blog..
Points 16.25
