Fontanario de Pegoes White Palmela 2017


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 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: 100% Fernao Pires

Viticluture and Vinification: The vineyards benefit from a Mediterranean and Continental climate. The vines are grown in sandy soils and harvested in August. Once picked, the grapes undergo a light skin maceration followed by alcoholic fermentation in temperature controlled tanks.

Tasting note: Pale lemon with a grassy nose, citrus palate, medium body with crisp acidity and a refreshing clean finish.

Serve: At 12°C with fish and white meats.

Evolution: Maintains its excellent characteristics for 3 years from vintage.
