Colheita Seleccionada Adega de Pegoes 2014

Producer Note

Santo Isidro de Pegões was founded in 1958. The cooperative is made up of 140 winegrowers and has access to over 1,100 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.

Vineyard

The Pegões vineyard is located between two Nature Reserves: the Tagus estuary to the Northwest and the Sado on the Southwest. To the east are the Arrabida hills and to the west the Alentejo province's clays. The unique soil here is named "Pliocenico de Pegões". It is a sandy soil formed over millions of years by sand transported by the rivers Tagus and Sado. It is this Mediterranean climate and soil combination that creates this unique Pegões terroir.

Winemaking

Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, followed by a long skin maceration. The wine was then aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels followed by four months in bottle, prior to release.

Tasting Note

A richly flavoured wine with aromas of smooth, ripe red and black fruits complemented by chocolatey flavours. Structured with a velvety texture, this wine has great concentration and complexity.

Serving Suggestion

A versatile red which accompanies red meat dishes, mushroom risottos and cheese boards.

Grape

Cabernet Sauvignon 25%, Syrah 25%, Touriga Nacional 25%, Trincadeira 25%
