Casa Santos Lima has a presence all over Portugal with wines that come from the Lisboa, Algarve, Alentejo, Vinho Verde, and Douro regions. The company produces wines from all five of these regions every year, of various styles. From this powerhouse in the world of Portuguese wines comes their line of Confidencial Reservawines.

It is hard to know for sure, but maybe the name "confidential" was given to this wine for the secrecy behind the types of grapes included. While we know that there are 10 distinct varieties of grape from the Lisbon region in Confidencial Reserva 2014, the exact names remain confidential. But that does not really matter in the end. What matters is the flavour of this exquisite ruby-red wine.

Since it is made up of so many different grapes, it is not surprising that Confidencial Reserva 2014 shines with a complex aroma and intriguing blend of flavours. Its medium body makes this wine easy to drink while the six months spent ageing in both French and Portuguese oak give the final product those extra facets of flavour that make it even more remarkable. Dry and elegant, this wine has a lot of potential for ageing in the bottle. It also has the potential to make you very happy at your next meal. The choice is yours.

Confidencial Reserva 2014

The properties of Casa Santos Lima are located in Alenquer, 45 km at north of Lisbon, in a region where the winemaking tradition is centuries old and the typical rural landscapes appear with great beauty. The vineyards stretch over gentle slopes at altitudes between 100 and 220 m, with excellent sun exposure and a temperate climate by gentle sea breezes from the Atlantic Ocean, which is about 26 km. The predominant type of soil is clay - limestone of the Upper Jurassic period, having been found numerous examples of marine life fossils, and even traces of dinosaurs (Apatosaurus alenquerensis). The replanting of the vineyard has been done at a steady pace since 1990, with the finest Portuguese grape varieties, here present a unique regional character and also, to a lesser extent, with the best international varieties. In more than 200 hectares of vineyards of the family Santos Lima, you can find a huge diversity of grape varieties.

Confidencial Reserva 2014

Drawn from more than 10 different national and international grape varieties, has ruby ​​color set.

Evidence wide variety of complex aromas of ripe red fruits and vanilla.

Some structure, where the ripe red fruit sensations are in evidence and very well integrated into wood notes and fine tannins. Final velvety mouth with some acidity and complexity.

I had it alone. I liked sharing this wine with someone special.
Red with violet nuances. It disclosed a very nice smell of white roses. It tastes just like wine, as it has to be.

Clear notes of toffee. A smoky touch remained in my mouth.
A wine with too much body.
