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.
This wine is intense ruby red in colour. On the nose, there are vibrant aromas of red fruits and floral nuances – courtesy of the Touriga Nacional, On the palate, it is well-balanced, with smooth tannins and a lively, refreshing acidity. A perfect food wine with excellent structure and a lingering finish.
