Enjoy this gorgeous, full flavoured, velvety Gold medal red from a highly talented Portuguese winemaker, Diogo Sepulveda. Typical of this under-rated country, it not only provides real character, charm and punchy flavour, it's terrific value too.
"Lush, dark, rich, powerful. Enjoyed this lots. 5-Stars"
Online Review For the 2015 vintage
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.

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
