Herdare do Peso Sossego Alentejo Tinto  Portugal

Herdare do Peso Sossego Alentejo Tinto Portugal

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. VINEYARDS 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. VINIFICATION 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.
