Enjoy this gorgeous, full flavoured and velvety red from a highly talented Portuguese winemaker, Diogo Sepulveda. So typical of this underrated country, it not only provides real character, charm and punchy flavour, it represents terrific value too.

Beyond the Label
Concentrated blackberries, warming spice, a dash of creaminess
Portugal boasts a superb range of unique, quality wines that punch well above their weight for value, too. This rich red is one of them; from a family run property near Lisbon, close to the Atlantic coast. Founded in the late 19th century, three generations later it produces some of Portugal’s finest bottles. The winemaker is Diogo Sepulveda, who has worked in Pomerol, Napa and Australia's Barossa. This is a special red for Diogo - he sources grapes from his prized vineyard next to the church, the slope of which ensures fabulous ripeness. Rich, dark and supple, Quinta do Espírito Santo blends native grapes Tinta Roriz and Castelão. With intense blackberry and spicy damson fruit, it's a tasty glass with roast beef, duck or a rich game stew.
"Easy to drink flavoursome wine. There’s lots of dark fruit and some spice too. I’d buy it again"
