Adega de Pegoes Moscatel de Setubal NV

Rich and sweet but balanced by lovely freshness.


Producer Note
Cooperativa Santo Isidro de Pegões was founded in 1958. The cooperative is made up of 140 winegrowers and has access to over 1100 hectares of vineyard located in the Terras do Sado area of the Setúbal peninsula. This coastal area benefits from mineral-rich sandy soils and cooling Atlantic winds. Santo Isidro de Pegões is one of the most forward thinking cooperatives in Portugal and their chief winemaker, Jaime Quendera one of Portugal's most respected winemakers. In 2017 they were awarded the Portuguese Wine Producer of the Year Trophy from the IWSC.

 

Winemaking
Light pelicular maceration followed by alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures until 1060 g/dm of density. Fermentation is stopped by adding grape brandy. The wine is then aged on the lees until March the following year. It is matured in American oak barrels for 3 years.

 

Tasting Note
Amber in colour, with intense aromas of orange peel and honey. The wine is rich and sweet but has a refreshing acidity.
