17.50

Producing quality wines since 1920, Pegos Claros Estate Farm was responsible in the 90s for the production of wines which became national and international references of the best wines produced as DOC Palmela. Harvesting done manually followed by fermentation with traditional foot treading in open “lagar”, oak ageing and exclusively from old vines. Produced from autochthonous red grapes of Castelão from Palmela Region, Pegos Claros Reserva is a red wine that reveals itself with defined maturity, with well-marked black fruits aromas in its aromatic bouquet, balsamic notes, and spices. It is a complex red wine with good acidity and a very elegant structure. Pairs well with grilled meat and roasted fish and meat.
