Quinta do Espirito Santo 2017
True Portuguese treasure, rich, dark, velvety and luscious - with Gold and Best in Show!
Portugal boasts a superb range of unique wines, and the quality is outstanding. This rich, powerful red is from Casa Santos Lima, a grand, family run property located near Lisbon, close to the Atlantic coast. The estate was founded by Joaquim Santos Lima in the late 19th century and, three generations later, it produces some of Portugal's finest bottles. The winemaker is Diogo Sepulveda, who has worked in Pomerol, Napa and at 5-star Halliday rated Turkey Flat in the Barossa. Rich and ripe, with excellent structure, Quinta do Espírito Santo blends native grapes Tinta Roriz and Castelão. With intense blackberry and damson fruit and notes of mocha, it makes a tasty glass with roast beef, duck or a flavoursome casserole. It's a beauty - with Gold and Best in Show at the prestigious Mundus Vini to prove it.
