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
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
2019 was a warm vintage in the Península de Setúbal. There were no significant
weather events which interrupted the growth cycle. Harvest took place under good
conditions and the fruit reached good maturity.


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 soil here is named "Pliocenico de
Pegões", which 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 with selected yeasts in 225 litre American and
French oak barrels. Bâtonnage took place once per week, imparting complexity and
texture. The wine was then aged for approximately three months in oak barrels
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.
