You will like to know that…
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.
