Quinta do Pégo Signature 2014 is produced by the South African winemaker Wouter Pienaar.
As 2014 was a good vintage, Quinta do Pégo has chosen to produce this Quinta do Pégo Signature red wine. It was produced for the first time in vintage 2011, followed by the second and third releases in 2012 and 2013 – all three wines were highly regarded by all wine lovers. Therefore, it is now decided to repeat the success by this vintage 2014.
The wine is produced from Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Sousão grapes and it has been aged for 15 months in new French oak. Afterwards the wine has been aged in the bottle before being released.
2014 Quinta do Pégo Signature has a beautiful, rich, dark red colour, variety of fruit flavours, berries, cherries, liquorice and an oakiness which contributes to the complexity of the wine and with more ageing will integrate more to improve the wine. For such a young wine it is already very elegant with strong, ripe tannin structure and subtle oak overtones showing good maturation potential.
Quinta do Pégo Signature is produced in very limited amount.
As the wine is only lightly filtered, deposit might occur and therefore decanting is recommended.
