O Produtor, tasting note published in July 19th 2020

A wine with a brilliant ruby color, notes of dark chocolate and liquorice. On the palate it expresses the terroir of the Douro with an acidity that is well combined with wood. A different Touriga Nacional.

Quinta do Pessegueiro

Winter was cold and dry, spring cold and extremely rainy. Temperatures started to raise significantly towards end of June, getting very intense in the beginning of August. This did speed up the delayed maturation process, which was, luckily, balanced by the abundant water reservations.

Harvest took place in September. The grapes were transported in 22Kg boxes up to the wine lodge. They were kept in cold storage for 12h and then they were gravity-driven to the “lagar”, where it completed the fermentation. The wine was placed in 225L casks, where the malolactic fermentation occurred. Aging was done in the same casks for 12 months. The wine was bottled in June 2020.

Quinta do Pessegueiro

The wines produced at Quinta do Pessegueiro seduce for their undeniably superior quality, the result of a complete and balanced project whose objective is to value the originality and properties of each small vineyard in the truest possible way. At the head of a group that became, after 50 years, the leader of children’s fashion, Roger Zannier is today also present in several wine regions of the world, such as the Douro region (Portugal) and Provence (France).

In his frequent visits to Portugal as part of his textile activities, Roger Zannier discovers Quinta do Pessegueiro, being literally seduced by the Douro property and region. In 1991, he acquires the land, immediately starting to plant vineyards. Thus was born his first and one of his most important investments in the wine sector.

The property expanded over the years and is now composed of three plots, all located in the Douro region.

As this region is one of the most unlikely where man has ever tried to plant vines, it took the foresight and modesty of a respectful captain of the land, such as João Nicolau de Almeida, to associate ancestral techniques with the most modern methods of oenology and viticulture.
