Pegões is distinguished by a unique “Terroir”. 

It is characterised by the combination of poor sandy soils rich in water, with the Mediterranean climate in the proximity of the Atlantic sea. This combination creates a perfect harmony that brings an excellent environment to the development of noble grapes.

What to expect?

Well-balanced and deep character with medium acidity, fine acidity and aromas of black currant & herbs. Complex palate with notes of plums, blackberries, herbs and balsam and a lengthy finish.

This is recommended maximum storage time. It is best served at 16-18 degrees celsius, and best consumed with meat, cheese and well cooked fish dishes.
