Portugese game-changers, ESPERA (meaning wait in Portugese) is the young project of young wine maker Rodrigo Martins in the region of Alcobaca. He uses only indigenous varieties, everything done by hand without any chemicals. He finds great acidity and purity, with complexity but LOW alcohol.

The variety here is 
Castleao. The wine is not your standard meaty Portugese red, it is pale and intense with prickly acidity and superb length. This wine is all about that most  typically undefinable of wine words: minerality. It drinks more like a Burgundy, with a smoky, graphite character. Spell binding - a wine to take your time with - evening sun. STSWine
