This wine is full of flavour, with fruity aromas of orange blossom and fresh fruits, perfectly complemented by oak spice. On the palate, it is rich and opulent, with a creamy vanilla spice and a persistent, elegant finish. Its tropical flavours and fresh, persistent aftertaste make it a structured and enjoyable choice.

Critic Review

Decanter Magazine: 90Pts (2021 Vintage)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2027

"Adega de Pegões is a cooperative winery located in the Setúbal region. With over 100 growers, it covers 1,117ha and the majority of production is red wine. But this white wine is a blend of native Portuguese varieties Fernão Pires, Verdelho, Antão Vaz and Arinto, with a small proportion of Chardonnay too. Fermented and aged in American and French oak, it's a bold and full-on style of wine with a pungent nose of roses and peach skin. Intense and intriguing, the notes of lavender and patchouli are backed up by a full and creamy texture. There's 6.4g/L of residual sugar, which doesn't necessarily come through as sweetness but gives a long, lush finish."

"Mmm. Really rather creamy, interesting and appealing on the nose and full, mildly floral and satin-textured on the palate. It’s certainly easy to drink now – not unlike an especially light marmalade (do they still make Golden Shred?) – but it also seems constituted for a few more years’ development. Great evidence of the value to be found in Portugal. VGV*"

About the Producer

Santo Isidro de Pegões was founded in 1958 and has subsequently seen significant
investment in the winery and vineyards. Today, the cooperative is made up of 100
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, in which indigenous varieties thrive. 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 2018,
Santo Isidro de Pegões was awarded the Portuguese Wine Producer of the Year Trophy
from the IWSC.

Vineyard and Winery

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.

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.
