Al-Ria Reserva, Algarve 2017

Red Wine from Portugal
0 star rating 0 Reviews
Robust but velvety big brother to the Al-Ria red, from the warm south of Portugal, which blends local touriga nacional (fragrant black fruits) with ripe, peppery syrah, all rounded off by 12 months in French and sweeter American oak barrels.

Casa Santos Lima

The Casa Santos Lima winery is situated in the Alenquer, approximately 45 kilometres north of Lisbon. The estate has around 200 hectares of vines, around half of which have been planted since 1990. It is a family property now run by José Oliveira da Silva, who was the first of the family to bottle his own production back in 1996 (his grandfather exported in barrel). It is made up of a number of Quintas which each serve as wine 'brands', including Quinta da Espiga and Quinta da Boavista.

The cellar was built in the 1940s but has been upgraded and modernised steadily for the production of great-quality everyday drinking wines. Fifty or so myriad grape varieties are planted, both indigenous Portuguese and international, and a large range produced.

The company has grown considerably over the years and now owns vineyards and wineries in various regions including the Algarve, Douro Valley, Alentejo and Minho (Vinho Verde).
