Azores Wine Co. Arinto dos Açores 2018

PortugalArinto dos Açores is a unique grape native to the Azores, unrelated to mainland Portugal's Arinto. These vines are planted in the rock cracks at the foothills of the volcanic mountain, almost touching the ocean. The vineyards are protected from the strong salty marine breezes by rock walls known as currais. Tight and crunchy with green apple, lemon pith, green hedge on a vibrant, mouthwatering palate, this rings of marine minerality, with the salinity lingering far after the last sip. Unique and characterful beauty.Tasted: 28 February 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 49.95 consignment Producer: Azores Wine Co.Distributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
