Colheita Seleccionada Adega de Pegoes White 2017

Waxy aromas of orange blossom are followed by a rich and opulent flavour of peach melba, with a touch of ginger, creamy and elegant.

Producer Note

Cooperativa Santo Isidro de Pegões was founded in 1958. 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 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.

Vintage

2017 will be remembered as being an excellent harvest. The grapes reached perfect levels of maturity and ripeness, with a beautiful balancing acidity. Yields were slightly down, but this is overshadowed by it being one of the best vintages for many years and the resulting wines are of the highest quality.

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

The vines were harvested at the end of August. The grapes underwent a short skin maceration followed by fermentation in American and French oak barrels. The wine was then aged for approximately three months in oak barrels with regular stirring of the lees, followed by six months to one year in bottle, before being released.

Tasting Note

A full flavoured wine with fruity aromas of orange blossom and fresh fruits which work in harmony with the oak spice. Rich and opulent on the palate with a creamy vanilla spice and a persistent, elegant finish.

Serving Suggestion

Food friendly, accompanying stronger fish dishes such as a rich stew, poultry served in a cream sauce and hard cheese.

Grape

Fernão Pires 30%, Antão Vaz 25%, Verdelho 25%, Arinto 10%, Chardonnay 10%
