Product Description

Venancio da Costa Lima Palmela Reserva is made from 100% Castelao (also known as Periquita) 

Intense garnet color, complex nose with touches of ripe fruit, jam and spices, full-bodied flavor and a very balanced finish.

100% Castelao (also known as "Periquita" and "Joao de Santarem". As the most widely-grown red grape variety in Portugal it is still often referred to in Portuguese as Periquita, although that name is legally owned by José Maria da Fonseca in the Setúbal Peninsula outside of Lisbon. It is highly adaptable to different climatic conditions and its remarkable versatility enables winemakers to make a range of wines – from the easy drinking and quaffable reds and rosados to the powerful and intense reds perfectly suited to lengthy cellaring. Castelão comes into its own and is most expressive in the Sétubal Peninsula, where it makes meaty and intense wines with aromas of red berries and blue flowers that marry well with the deft use of oak.

Made from 45 year old vines.

Classic vinification at controlled temperature (25 °C) with prolonged maceration for phenolic extraction. Wine went through malolactic fermentation.

Wine was slightly fitered before bottling to avoid sedimentation in the bottle and to ensure stability.

Pasta, Cheese, red meat and game.

 


 

Winery: Venancio da Costa Lima

Venâncio da Costa Lima was born in 1892 in the town of Quinta do Anjo, at the heart of a modest family. His mother died when he was very young and he was raised by his aunt and uncle, on a farm. Due to his father’s profession (a butcher), Venâncio’s first job was as a livestock tradesman to the region’s butcheries.
He quickly diversified his business, trading essentially in agricultural products.

In 1914 he founded the Casa Agrícola Venâncio da Costa Lima, in Quinta do Anjo. Primarily focused on selling wine, olive oil and grain, the firm later specialised exclusively in the production and sale of wine.
Between the 1930’s and 1950’s, Venâncio da Costa Lima was the second largest wine producer in the region.

During his lifetime, he became a highly recognised and esteemed person in the region, occupying the following positions:

- Chief-leader of the Quinta do Anjo township
- Councilman of the Setúbal Municipality 
- Mayor of Palmela (1937-1946), carrying out remarkable work for the Council
- Owner in the Agricultural and Restaurant industries

He died on November 1st 1956, at the age of 64. This being the date for the local celebrations in the town where he was born, that year they were cancelled entirely due to the great dismay that his death provoked in the region.

Because he was childless, Venâncio bequeathed the winery to his six nieces and nephews who, from that time on, specialised in this region´s wines (Moscatel, red and white). Having passed through four generations, this winery remains a family business, managing 3 million litres annually.
It is currently in an investment phase, rebuilding the entire production area. 
Recently recognised as producer of the "Best Muscat in the World "- Muscats du Monde 2011, this company has projected its name on a large scale and works daily towards producing the best wines in the region.

Chateau Castegens Cotes de Bordeaux Castillon 2015

Chateau Castegens Cotes de Bordeaux Castillon is made from 80% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon

Intense and deep vivace red color. 
Nose with black fruit, blackberry, cigar box, licorice, some delicate and integrated oak flavors as well.
In the mouth, we have an explosion of fruit flavors, spice and fine wood. The structure is rich, but the tannins are well integrated already. The finish is long and a slight mintiness give the wine a great length and some purity.

Located on top of a South facing steep vineyard, with great natural water drainage and an excellent sun exposure.
Harvest was conducted by machine in order to get the maximum ripeness. 
Then everything was sorted at the winery in order to get only the best fruit in the tanks.

Wine was aged in French Oak Barrels for 12 months.
