One of my favourite white discoveries of last year; crisp, fresh and elegant with classic varietal character and a mouthwatering finish. - Chris Connolly
It presents an intense ruby colour with a red fruit and black tea flavour along with soft tannins and a balanced acidity.
- Filipe Sevinate Pinto & Susana Correia, winemakers
Rich smoky black fruit aromas, with star anise, clove and a touch of spicy oak, lead on to a complex palate. Ripe bramble fruit and plum flavours are backed by well-structured tannins and a touch of dark chocolate - all lifted by balancing acidity.
100% Touriga Nacional - a Blanc de Noir, though the warming copper tones you'll spot in the glass give a hint at this wines unusual style.
Complex aromatics with notes of fresh and preserved red fruits, spring blossoms, red apple, and much, much more. On the palate there's a fruity yet crisp freshness with a beautifully balanced acidity, with more white fruit character coming through. Great mouth-feel and a long persistent finish.
A blend of Trincadeira, Alfrocheiro, Alicante Bouschet & Touriga National, this is full of sour cherries & subtle warm spices like cinnamon & cloves which give way to rich juicy cherry, chocolate & pepper on the palate, with a good length & a perfumed finish.
Great with strong meats like bacon, steak & roast lamb. Matches well with a selection of mature cheeses & roast peppers
Produced in Quinta de Santa Teresa, with grapes from the P67 parcel, this Monólogo is made from Avesso, the typical variety of Baião.
This wine shows a fresh aromatic profile, with notes of white flowers, thyme and a citric side to it, particularly passion fruit. On the palate smooth and silky notes of guava and pear, along with a well-adjusted acidity. It will age well in bottle.
Aged in used barrels so as to impart less characteristics of the oak, yet keeping its softening effects on the wine. No ageing in bottle is necessary due to its natural occurring oxidation, meaning this wine will (if kept properly) last many months after opening, with no change in profile.
In the glass you can really see the beautiful colour of this amber nectar, with citrus, orange peel and ripe apricots on the nose. Followed on the palate by cinnamon, hints of dried fruit, a smooth roasted hazelnut, with a surprisingly persistent finish.
Simple and involving, this wine is an expression of our gratitude to the land. The Touriga Nacional, Syrah and Alicante Bouschet varieties amuse themselves, cherished by the richness of the soils of Beja and the heat of Alentejo.
Wine of intense ruby colour, aroma of well ripened red fruits, vanilla, good acidity and soft tannins.
A blend of three grape varieties (Tourigo Franca, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca) and aged in French oak for 3 months. A Dark densely coloured wine, with jammy and cinnamon aromas. Full bodied with ripe tannins and a long finish.
A blend of classic Douro varieties where Viosinho from Quinta do Confradeiro is predominant, but is completed with Malvasia Fina, Gouveio and Rabigato. It ferements at cold temperatures in stainless steel vats and then is left in contact with its lees until bottling what gives it additional complexity and richness. It's a classic in our portfolio. Very elegant with some apricot and grapefruit notes and a mineral sensation. Great texture and acidity give it a really fresh mouthfeel. Very gastronomic and versatile.

This classic blend is from winemaker Ana Rola, who aims to make true and honest wines with little intervention to ensure the grapes shine through.
Delicate aromas of dark fruit with subtle floral tones. The palate is elegant yet full, with satisfying tannins balanced by refreshing acidity.
A wine drinkers wine with a big character. It has a very strong ruby colour, due to the red flesh of this grape, with a deep smell of spices, red berries, chocolate and slightly smoky.
In the mouth it has various sensations and flavours with red fruit being the dominant taste. The well structured tannins and its complexity are a result of careful ageing in oak barrels which also assists in its long finish.Casa Santos Lima
Made from 100% Alicante Bouschet from the Antes and Boa Vista vineyards. The grapes are harvested as late possible to obtain the full richness of the fruit and tannins. The wine sees prolonged maceration on skins followed by 14 months maturation in barrel. The wine has intense notes of dark fruit and spice, which on the palate become plums and prunes, with smooth rich tannins providing a long rich finish with some good acidity.
Encruzado is one to the best and most distinct of the Portuguese white grape varieties. This wine, after 4 months aging in usted barrels on yeast lees has a citrus and white peach aroma, with refreshing minerality on the palate, so characteristic of the variety.

Made from selected old vine grapes grown at the higher altitudes of the Alto Alentejo. Small tank fermentation with prolonged maceration resulted in wines, from the above varieties, being selected by their potential for 22 months barrel aging resulting in a rich and complex wine typical of the this special region of Portugal.
Dense red with dark center, ripe soft red fruit, violets with tarry/spicy notes. Layers of ripe fruit, good acidity and structure. Great volume with integrated oak followed by a soft, prolonged finish.

Made from a blend of Loureiro 50%, Avesso 15% and Arinto 35%. Floral, citrus and gentle tropical aromas lead on to a palate which is deliciously off-dry with flavours of ripe melon and sherbet lemon acidity. The finish is refreshing with a classic spritz.Casa de Vila Nova
