Adega de Pegoes, Selected Harvest, Setubal, Portugal 2017


They say that you should try everything once, except incest and Morris dancing. It’s probably fair to assume that you haven’t tried a blend of Arinto, Verdelho, Antão Vaz and Chardonnay before, but if this wine is anything to go by, then you shouldn't waste another moment. It's a blissful  combination, bearing a striking resemblance to Pierre Gaillard’s wonderful Cotes du Rhone Blanc ‘Les Gendrines’ with its delicate and dainty aromas of honeysuckle, cream soda, jasmine and apricot. There’s a suggestion of Viognier both on the nose and palate, which shows a delicate ripeness of yellow- and orange-fleshed stone fruits, lemon meringue and a wisp of vanilla thanks to the 3 months spent in French and American oak. The packaging is as elegant as the wine itself and we strongly recommend buying this by the case. 13% alc. Drink now-2020. 

Press reviews (previous vintage):

Jancis (Tamlyn Currin): "Patisserie and lemon curd. Soft, tangy passion-fruit brightness that spreads easily over the palate. A dab of vanilla cream. Easy and friendly and charming. Drink 2017-2018." 16 points and 'Very Good Value'
