Adega de Pegoes, Selected Harvest, Setubal, Portugal 2015/2016


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-2018. 

Press reviews:

"It is one of the best-value wines I have had this year." - Hamish Anderson, The Telegraph

"This is a very nice value. It doesn't have any bombast, but it has better concentration and structure for this level than many similar wines do. It finishes well, too. It is clean and tasty, handling its oak nicely." - The Wine Advocate

Customer comments:

"It's really quite exceptional!" - Mr. J.H.

"Very much enjoying the Portuguese wine - a perfect summer drink." - Mr. D.D.
