Herdade do Peso ‘Trinca Bolotas’ Alentejo Tinto 2021

14% abv

Vol- 75cl

This wine is intense ruby red in colour. On the nose, there are vibrant aromas of red fruits and floral notes, On the palate, it is well balanced, with smooth tannins and a lively, refreshing acidity. A
perfect food wine with good structure and a long finish.

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.

After destemming and gentle crushing, the must was left to macerate for three to four days prior to fermentation, to increase the wine’s aromatic and phenolic complexity. Alcoholic
fermentation took place at a controlled temperature of 26ºC for seven days. After malolactic fermentation, 70% of the wine was aged in stainless steel tanks with the remainder aged in French
oak barrels, for six months. To preserve the quality of the wine, it was bottled without cold stabilisation so a natural deposit may form in the bottle.

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.
