Portuga 2017

Vinho Regional Lisboa

According to Wine Spectator Portugal is “the most exciting wine place on the planet” and with delicious reds like this, it's hard to argue. It's made at the grand Casa Santos Lima estate and is velvety textured with luscious black fruit and spice.

Portuga is made by Casa Santos Lima, a grand Portuguese estate in the Lisboa region, just north of the capitol. João Santos Lima founded it in the 19th century and it has been in the same family for three generations. Diogo Sepúlveda is the winemaker today. He has worked vintages all across the world, including Bordeaux's prestigious Pomerol and California's Napa Valley. He is a talented winemaker, who relaxes in his spare time by wrestling bulls (all muscle, no knives!). Portuga is a rich, velvety blend of traditional native varieties, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, aged gently in oak. Delicious either served on its own, with rich pork dishes, or tangy tomato pasta. It's an ideal wine for a barbecue too or with mature hard cheeses.

"Portugal has done it again – fabulous ripe fruit richness in just the right measure. Great value too" Jehan Sacaze
