Peninsula De Setubal
Crisp, dry & zesty dry Muscat from the sun baked plains east of Lisbon.
Grape Varieties: Muscat
Style: Dry, fruity
Drink By: 2013
The famous dry Muscats grown in the Pegoes region, a jurassic seabed that makes up the sun baked plains east of Lisbon, are renowned for their scented bouquet and fruity flavour.
This wine is an aromatic medley suggesting rich and juicy summer ripe fruit, yet is refreshingly zesty, crisp and dry. Great with Oriental and spicy cuisine, salads and fish. Serve nicely chilled.
Pegões, established in 1958, is a modern winery recognised both in domestic and international markets. Pegões wines have been distinguished with several awards at the most important international wine contests. With a vineyard area of 2.200 acres, they follow a systematic strategy of modernisation with the key objective of continuously improving the quality and value of their wines.
The Pegões Terroir is located between two Nature Reserves – the Tagus estuary to the Northwest and the Sado on the Southwest, on the east side of the Arrabida hills and on the west side of the Alentejo´s province clays. The Pegões region is unique in climate and soil conditions. The climate is Mediterranean and the soil, named “Pliocenico de Pegões”, is sandy formed over millions of years by sand transported by the rivers Tagus and Sado. It is this climate / soil combination that gives birth to the unique Pegões wines.
Winner of 140 International Wine Awards. UK wine critic Jamie Goode says this is “possibly Portugal's best Co Op.”
