Quinta da Lapa Selection Red 2019 75cl


Tasting Note

The Portuguese have always be experts with their wine blends & this is no exception. Bright ruby with garnet reflections, pleasant aroma of ripe fruit with hints of wild herbs, sweet spice & beetroot. Good mouth volume, juicy fruit with strawberries & cream standing out in harmony with some toasty notes. Nice, dried-fruit finish.

This wine can be laid down for up to 6 years. Really interesting creaminess on the finish as well! Easy drinking & easy crowd pleaser!


Quinta da Conceição da Lapa was acquired in 1706 by D. Lourenço de Almeida from Captain Bartolomeu Lobo da Gama, for the sum of 11.500 silver crusades. A unique location where the best land was chosen among the fertile hills to the East of Montejunto mountain, a territory that is now part of the Tejo Wine Region.

D. Lourenço, son of the Count of Avintes was the great reformer & developer of Quinta da Lapa. He chose the highest ground of his vast estate to build a manor house with its chapel, farm buildings & an important wine cellar in order to produce the best wines from the surrounding vineyards. This reform dates from 1733 & almost three centuries later the estate underwent yet another much needed improvement. This included building a new winery & replanting the vineyards both with traditional local varietals & a selection of international grapes that best thrive in their terroir. The outcome of all their hard work shows as their wines have consistently earned important medals & awards at both international & domestic wine competitions.
