A complex nose combining plum, mulberry, ripe strawberry and brown spice with delicate floral and
violet notes. Tannins are firm and pleasingly supported with plump fruit and a rounded texture, giving
a good lengthy finish.Perfect with wild boar sausages, venison, roast lamb or gamey stews.Suitable for vegans.Suitable for vegetarians.Made from Nebbiolo grapes cultivated around the town of Barolo in southern Piemonte. These are
trained on a low Guyot trellis at a density 4-5,000 vines/ha. The grapes were hand-harvested, de stemmed and then crushed to small fermenters, for around 12 days, with daily pumping-over. This
ensures good colour and flavour extraction, but avoids over extraction of the abundant Nebbiolo
tannins. The wine was drained off at dryness, and the skins transferred to a small press. After pressing
the wine was settled for two days, and then racked to stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation.
After three years maturation in 50hl Slavonian oak casks it was racked and bottled.
This wine is bright ruby red in colour. On the nose, generous
aromas of strawberries and red cherries stand out, with spicy
complexity coming from the oak ageing. It is vibrant and supple
on the palate with elegant tannins, delicately balanced acidity
and a lovely fresh finish.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 planted with vines. Winemaker Luís Cabral de Almeida
makes expressive and generous wines that reflect the warmer
climate of the Alentejo.
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.
Following full destemming and gentle crushing, maceration and
fermentation took place in stainless-steel tanks at a controlled
temperature of 26ºC over a period of around eight days. After
malolactic fermentation, the wine aged in second, third and
fourth fill French oak barrels for around six months. It underwent a
light fining and filtration before bottling.
