Cintila Extra Dry NV, Peninsula de Setubal

Tasting notes

Buttery, cereal-like nose leads to a rich and creamy front palate. Then the wonderful acidity kicks in and leaves the mouth gasping for more.

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 Setubal peninsula. This coastal area benefits from mineral-rich sandy soils and cooling Atlantic winds. Santo Isidro de Pegoes is one of the most forward thinking cooperatives in Portugal and their chief winemaker, Jaime Quendera one of Portugal's most respected winemakers.
