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.
Cintila is made at the Cooperativa Santo Isidro de Pegoes, 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 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.
Sandy Pozolitic - a sandy soil formed over millions of years by sand transported by the rivers Tragus and Sado.
Fermentation in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures. Secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle.
