Lisboa hills have splendorous sightseeing at their top. An inspiration itself for a top wine mainly produced with this region's traditional grape varieties. Aromatic, well balanced with oak notes, it offers a smooth finish.
Topo offers some aromatic exuberance, with notes of red fruits and vanilla. Fruity on the palate, balanced by notes of spices, chocolate and discreet toasty flavours from the oak. An elegant wine with firm tannins and a fruity finish.
Most of Casa Santos Lima's estates are located in Alenquer, 45km north of Lisbon, in a region where wine production is centuries old and the typical rural landscapes are gifted with enormous beauty. The vineyards are planted in gentle slopes with altitudes between 100 and 220 meters benefiting from an excellent sun exposition and a climate slightly tempered by the nearby Atlantic Ocean, 25 km away from the property.
Previously destemmed, the grapes went through a low temperature pre-fermentative maceration for 24 hours. The alcoholic fermentation is done in stainless steel vats with temperature control between 26º - 28ºC, for 14 days. Skin contact maceration with (submerged) cap for 28 days. Partial ageing in oak barrels.
