PRODUCER NOTE:
Santo Isidro de Pegões was founded in 1958. The cooperative is made up of 90 winegrowers and has access to over 1,200 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.

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 grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness and vinified immediately to retain freshness. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel vats. The wine did not go through malolactic conversion and there was no oak ageing. As a result, the style of the wine is fresh, pure and aromatic.

TASTING NOTE:
A delicious, mouthwatering blend showing citrus notes and hints of sun-kissed peach. The crisp, clean palate is enhanced by spicy flavours and a clean, zesty finish.

GRAPE:
Fernão Pires 80%, Arinto 10%, Moscatel Graúdo 10%.
