Review: 2010 Esporao Verdelho

Portugal doesn’t just do fortified wines, it also has a wide array of dry table wines, many quite affordable. Esporao, one of the country’s top table wine producers, brings us this wine produced from the Verdelho grape, a hot-weather grape widely planted in the Alentejo region. The wine: Lemony, moderate body, almost Chardonnay-like in the mouth. Good acidity keeps you drinking, but the finish, a bit herbal, isn’t dead-on for the style I think Esporao was shooting for.
