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
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
Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures followed by
a long maceration to extract colour, flavours and tannins. The wine was aged for 12
months in 225 litre French and American oak of second passage, followed by four
months in bottle prior to release.


Tasting Note
An intense wine with flavours of black cherry complemented by delicate floral notes
and vanilla spice from the well-integrated oak. Smooth and flavoursome on the
palate with good structure through to a spicy and warm finish.
