Deep ruby in colour. The bouquet shows intense aromas of ripe blackberry, plum and raspberry combine with hints of balsamic and warm spicy notes of pepper and tobacco. The palate, is full-bodied with firm but ripe tannins and balanced acidity, culminating in a long and complex finish.

Situated in the south of the Alentejo, in the commune of Vidígueira, the Herdade do Peso estate covers a total of 457 hectares. On the estate are 160 hectares of vineyard planted on gently rolling hills, a new eco-friendly winery, an on-site reservoir and remarkable olive groves which date back to Roman times. Vidígueira is one of the cooler Alentejo sub-regions and benefits from cool Atlantic air funnelled inland by a gap in the coastal hills. The limestone soils of the estate also lend elegance to the vines. The vineyards are planted predominantly to red varieties, with just eight hectares planted to white varieties. A lot of work has gone into mapping the 12 different soil types on the estate and each variety is matched to its ideal plot. The talented Luís Cabral de Almeida, who has a post-graduate degree from Australia’s Charles Sturt University and worked for many years in the Finca Flichman winery in Mendoza, leads the winemaking team. Luís is very involved in the management of the Herdade do Peso vineyards and believes that 'the oenologist’s primary role is to interpret nature'. The Herdade do Peso wines reflect the unique sense of place of Vidígueira, they are exuberant, ripe and generous, yet kept in balance by a refreshing acidity.
