Portugal is “the most exciting wine place on the planet” says Wine Spectator. And lots of 5-Star online reviews suggest that Amoras is one of this country’s best value finds. It has a port-like richness, silky smooth texture and real drinkability.
"Fabulous, smooth and silky red! Full of fruit. 5-Stars"
Online Review For the 2015 vintage
Portugal’s characterful reds are woefully under represented in the UK. But we’re righting that wrong with full flavoured beauties like Amoras. It’s from Casa Santos Lima, a grand, family run property near Lisbon and the coast. The winery was founded by Joaquim Santos Lima in the late 19th century, and three generations later is one of Portugal’s most go-ahead cellars. The wine was made by Diogo Sepúlveda, who’s worked in Pomerol, Napa Valley and at 5-Star Halliday rated Turkey Flat in the Barossa. Amoras brings together four cracking local grape varieties: leafy raspberry Castelão, juicy cherry rich Camarate, cassis laden Touriga Nacional, and plummy Alicante Bouschet. Superb solo or with pork and bean casserole. Here in small bottle size.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
