Casa Santos Lima Lab Rose
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Fruit sourced from the Lisboa appellation in Portugal.
- The clay and limestone soils ensure a healthy environment thus creating the ideal conditions for vibrant and ripe grapes.
Varietal Composition: Castelão, Camarate, Cabernet Sauvignon
Elaboration: The grapes were destemmed, and pressed. Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats of 10,000 liters with temperature control to 64 ºF.
Tasting Notes: A lively rosé with very aromatic notes of ripe red fruits and flowers. In the palate, juicy strawberries and pink mulberry flavors with plenty of fine tannins take over on the finish.
Casa Santos Lima was created to ensure the continuous development of Santos Lima’s wine producing activity first established several generations ago. This was first started by Joaquim Santos Lima, who, by the turn of 19th century, was already a great producer and exporter of Portuguese wines. Maria João Santos Lima and José Luís Santos Lima Oliveira da Silva, granddaughter and great grandson of the founder, relaunched Casa Santos Lima in 1990, replanting most of the vines, improving agricultural techniques and modernizing all its productive structure. Since 1996, Casa Santos Lima, started bottling its own brands , which immediately achieved great success both in national and international markets.
