A great example of Portuguese expert blending, Quinta da Lapa harvests from the inland Tejo (formerly Ribatejo) region just outside Lisbon, where the influence of the Tejo River is felt. Touriga Nacional, Castaleo, Syrah and Alicante Bouschet grapes are fermented in stainless steel for 4 months with no oaking. 

Their Selection Red is bright ruby with garnet reflections and pleasant aromas of ripe fruit underlaid by hints of wild herbs, sweet spice and beetroot. Good mouth volume, with juicy strawberries & cream standing out before toasty notes and dried fruit on the velvety finish.  Try with roasted or grilled pork or chicken, dried apricot pastries, or honey roasted nuts. 

Quinta da Conceição da Lapa was originally founded in 1706, located among the fertile hills to the East of Montejunto mountain. Further reform of the grounds, including key vineyards and wine cellar, were made from 1733. Now, almost three centuries later, the owners have breathed more life into the project with a new winery and replanting of vineyards with traditional local varietals and a selection of international grapes.
