This irresistibly juicy red comes from Lisbon’s renowned Casa Santos Lima and Portugal’s ‘Best Young Winemaker 2016’, Diogo Sepúlveda. Having also worked in Pomerol and in the Barossa with heirloom Shiraz vines, his credentials for making this rich, old vine Portuguese red are second to none. Fans of smooth, mouth-filling wines take note – a delicious blend of Portuguese grapes (Castelão, Tinta Roriz, Syrah, & Touriga Franca) with ripe plum and blackcurrant aromas. In the mouth it shows ripe black fruits and cherry notes. Chocolate and liquorice flavours, given by ageing in oak barrique, dominate a long and smooth aftertaste.
