COLOSSAL RESERVA 16
Casa Santos Lima is a large, family owned, innovative Portuguese wine company, producing excellent wines across the board from indigenous traditional grape varieties, often blended with newcomers - to good effect.
Colossal is a great example. It's a blend of the great Portuguese red grape, Touriga Nacional, an extremely fashionable, dark skinned grape considered to be Portugal’s best red grape, with Syrah, Tinta Roriz (Portugal's name for Tempranillo) and 10% Alicante Bouschet, a tinteurier variety, which has deeply coloured red flesh.
This is big, but soft, smooth and velvety with great potential for aging, as older examples have shown and impressed our staff.
We have a growing fan base of loyal customers for this and our other Portuguese wines. One sip will show you why.
