Stella Rosso 2016, Peninsula de Setubal

Santo Isidro was founded in 1958, after the Portuguese government granted winegrowers land in the small village of Pegoes. The winery covers a total of 900 hectares owned by 140 of winegrowers producing 70% red and 30% white. The winery and vineyards are located in Terras do Sado, the coastal region of the Setubal peninsula. This area benefits from the mineral-rich sandy soils where both international and native grape varieties can be grown.

Santo Isidro de Pegoes is one of the most forward thinking co-operatives and their chief winemaker, Jaime Quendera, is a leading wine entrepreneur in Portugal, offering advice to over 20 other wineries throughout the country. The winery boasts the most up to date equipment; a computerised, temperature controlled modern winery, with 90 stainless steel vats, pneumatic presses, 1,600 oak barrels and modern bottling lines. They produce a wide range of wines that offer excellent value for money.

Grapes: Castelao 50% and Syrah 50%

Viticulture and Vinification: Sandy soils. Fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel vats, followed by pelicular maceration. Part of the wine is then aged for 6 months, in American oak barrels, followed by 4 months in bottle before it is released.

Tasting Note: Concentrated black forest fruits on the nose. This is followed through on the palate with hints of spice, chocolate and vanilla. Medium bodied with rounded, structured tannins and a long finish.

Serve: At 16-18C and partner with game, grilled meat or cheese.
