Wine tasting notes
A bold wine with flavours of black cherry with herbs and vanilla. Smooth and flavoursome on the palate with a spicy and warm finish.
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 they were awarded the Portuguese Wine Producer of the Year Trophy from the IWSC.
Pairs well with rich, hearty dishes such as a meat casserole, meat shortcrust pastry pies, beef tenderloin with blue cheese mash or mature cheese
