Portugal can boast a superb range of unique, amazing quality wines that punch well above their weight for value, too. 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 today, 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 spicy damson fruit, it makes a tasty glass with roast beef, duck or a rich game stew.
