Palmela 2015 by Venâncio da Costa Lima

This Palmela 2015 red wine origins from Península de Setúbal wine region in Portugal, Palmela DO, made by Venâncio da Costa Lima winery.

Opening this bottle, I tasted a dry red wine with an intense garnet color, made from 100% Castelão, the region’s most traditional grape variety, which was grown on clay-limestone soils and Mediterranean climate with a maritime influence.

This well-balanced drink is full of intense ripe fruity aromas like red fruits: cherry and plum, with a few wood notes on the nose, accompanied by a bit of oaky and spiciness on the palate.

Correct acidity, long tannins with an elegant finish, and 13,5% alcohol.

This wine represents the cross between traditional knowledge and modern winemaking techniques. Classic vinification with temperature control and prolonged maceration for phenolic extraction. Stage for 6 months in French oak barrels.

Consumption up to 6 years, served on 18 ºC.

Pairing well with meat, pasta or cheese.

The Palmela 2015 is a very aromatic red wine, worth a taste… Cheers!
