QUINTA DO PÉGO 2011
Douro D.O.P. Grande Reserva
Quinta do Pégo Grande Reserva 2011 is the result of a careful selection of wines of the 2011 harvest, produced from the main red varieties Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Cão and Sousao. The wine is produced by Wouter Pienaar. 60% of this elegant wine has been matured in French oak casks for approximately 12 months and 40% in stainless steel tanks with a light filtration before bottling.
This wine has a luscious deep ruby colour, rich and aromatic flavours with strong overtones of red, ripe fruits such as blackberries, cherries and pepper. The vanilla oakiness combined with an almond overtone contributes to a complex, consistent and balanced wine with strong tannin structure and a persistent finish with good maturation potential. This unique and well structured wine is especially suitable with red meats, game and cheese.
