Complex aromas of red fruits, vanilla and jam. With initial smooth velvety notes of red ripe fruits, the tasting evolves to hints of chocolate, spices, prunes and some oak. Fine tannins, well balanced and persistent aftertaste.

Winery Details

Casa Santos Lima was created to ensure the continuous development of Santos Lima’s wine producing activity created several generations ago. This activity was first started by Joaquim Santos Lima, who, by the turn of 19th century, was already a great producer and exporter of Portuguese wines. Maria João Santos Lima and José Luís Santos Lima Oliveira da Silva, granddaughter and great grandson of the founder, relaunched Casa Santos Lima in 1990, replanting most of the vines, improving agricultural techniques and modernizing all its productive structure.

Casa Santos Lima was recognized as the "Best Portuguese Producer" by the prestigious international wine competition – "Mundus Vini 2021". This is not the first time that the company is selected in this category, since Casa Santos Lima also received this trophy by the "Berliner Wein Trophy 2020" competition.

This distinction highlights the excellent positioning and work done both internationally and nationally.
