Conde d'Ervideira Reserva 2010

16.0 / 20
Producer: Ervideira
Region: Alentejo
Country: Portugal

Lively garnet to the eye, the nose is very Alentejo, if a bit closed at first. Fleshy red fruit mixed with nicely balanced oak notes and some smoke make for an inviting and fresh bouquet.

Round, velvety and balanced in the mouth, it shows a medium structured body with quality red fruit mixed with a vanilla/oaky side and a good deal of acidity that, although it does not overpower the rest of the wine, it certainly provides a backbone and makes it a good match for much about any food. Very gastronomical and balanced, it's a classical Alentejo with a medium length, impositive, palate cleansing ending.
