The Oddbins Take

Nothing short of a sensation, this little red has been a success story at Oddbins over the past few years, such is its astonishing quality when price is considered. A Portuguese blend of four red varieties, this is ripe and warm with juicy flavours and is amazingly food friendly. It's usually almost impossible to find this much character and pizazz at this price but this red is truly the real deal.

Casa Santos Lima has been a family business for four generations. Today, under José Luis Oliveira da Silva, it owns several estates covering some 280 hectares in the Alenquer, the most prestigious DOC appellation within the Lisboa region. The grapes for the Bons Ventos are grown on clay and limestone soils. After fermentation in stainless steel and epoxy-lined cement vats, and maceration with skins for a month, the wine is cellared in oak barrels to mature for four months.
