Fontario De Pegoes, 2006
Palmela D.O.C. 75cl
Another tasty white from this succesful co-op. This is mostly made from the indigenous Fernao Pires varietal and is typicaly slightly floral on the nose but has just a little bit about it on the palate than Italian equivalents.
The palate weight is still relatively light but there are hints of exotic fruit as well as typical lightly spice pear character. The key to its success is its freshness and although the back label says drink within 3 years i would opt to half that. Packaging a little dated but the packaging on the Adega De Pegoes wine is now ultra modern. Maybe they are feeling their way into new label designs
