This wine is bright gold in colour with youthful hues. On the nose, peach aromas complement citrus blossom and ripe pear notes. On the palate, the wine is full of juicy stone fruits with a lively acidity. It has a wonderfully fresh finish.

Origin

Despite its southerly location, Vidígueira is one of the cooler Alentejo sub-regions and benefits from cool Atlantic air funnelled inland from the coast by a gap in the surrounding mountains. Limestone soils help to control vine vigour and lend elegance to the wines. All of the Herdade do Peso vineyards are sustainably farmed and an on-site dam provides much-needed water to irrigate the vineyards during the Alentejo summers.

Grape Variety

75% Antão Vaz 20% Arinto/Pedernã 5% Roupeiro.

After harvest, the grapes were destemmed and gently pressed. After 24 hours, the wine was racked into vats, where it fermented at 16oC for 18 days. After fermentation, the wine remained in vats for around three months before being gently fined, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.

Alcohol Percentage

12.5%

Producer

The Guedes family had always rated the quality of the Herdade do Peso grapes – they had been using them in their Vinha do Monte wines since the early 1990s – and jumped at the opportunity to purchase the estate in 1996. Situated in the south of the Alentejo, in the sub-region of Vidígueira, the Herdade do Peso estate covers a total of 457 hectares, 160 hectares of which are currently under vine. Winemaker Luís Cabral de Almeida makes expressive and generous wines that reflect the warmer climate of the Alentejo.

Food Match

Matches well with pork, fish, pasta and lean fish.

    Pleasantly fruit skin and lemon rind hint of waxiness. Nice mouthfeel and textural richness, again a bit of skinny grip in a pleasing style.

    My first time with a Portuguese white wine and certainly not disappointed. Will buy this wine again for sure. Nice citrus end to the taste

    Decent if not particularly impressive. Citrus flavours most prominent but generally well balanced.
