Colheita Seleccionada Adega de Pegoes White 2016

Santo Isidro was founded in 1958, after the Portuguese government granted vinegrowers land in the small village of Pegoes. The winery covers a total of 900 hectares owned by 140 of vinegrowers producing 70% red and 30% white wines. 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. 

Tasting note:

Viticulture and Vinification:

The vineyards benefit from a Mediterranean and Continental climate.  The vines are grown in sandy soils and harvested at the end of August. The grapes undergo a short skin maceration followed by fermentation in French and American oak barrels. The wine is then aged for 4 months in oak barrels followed by 6months to 1 year in bottle prior to release.

Serve:

At 14°C with grilled chicken or fish. 

Evolution:

Will age well for up to 3 years from vintage.
