Casa Santos Lima, a grand Portuguese estate, has been in the same family since the late 19th century. Portuga Tinto is one of our most popular reds but our buyers like a challenge so they worked with the team at the award-winning Casa Santos Lima winery to create something even better.
Portuga Reserva is a blend of Castelão, Touriga Franca, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah
Aged for six months in a mix of new and old oak barrels, it has greater depth and complexity than our best-seller, Portuga Tinto
The winemaker is Diogo Sepúlveda who has worked extensively in wineries around the world including in Pomerol and the Napa Valley
Tasting note:Look forward to dark, brooding red fruits, spicy damson notes and gentle toasty oak. This rich and aromatic wine features notes of red and ripe black fruits elegantly combined with hints of spice owed to its time in oak. In the mouth it shows an excellent structure, smooth tannins, rounded fruit with a long and persistent finish.
