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, Santo Isidro de
Pegões was awarded the Portuguese Wine Producer of the Year Trophy from the
IWSC.


Vintage
The 2016 season started off with a dry and warmer winter than in average years,
followed by a cold spring. Heavy rain during the early summer replenished the water
reserves in the soil, ready for the warm summer that followed. The grapes were
harvested with good phenological ripeness and flavour development along with
balanced acidity and sugar levels.


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 225 litre second use
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.
