Azores Wine Company Verdelho O Original is an intensely mineral dry white wine, from the traditional Verdelho grape grown on extraordinary, windswept, coastal, volcanic vineyards in the Azores.

The windswept archipelago of the Azores in the mid-Atlantic is one of the world's most unique wine regions, recognised by Unesco in 2004. Vine s have been planted here since the 15th century. The Azores Wine Company is a project between winemakers Filipe Rocha, António Maçanita and Paulo Machado who have worked together to revitalise old vineyards and use combination of traditional and modern winemaking techniques to present these treasures to the world.

The grapes are harvested manually in 40kg baskets. The whole bunches are pressed and a natural racking occurred within 24 hours. The fermentation occurs in small stainless steel vats.

Grape: Verdelho

Tasting Notes: Aromas of lime zest and muted pineapple with hints of ripe apple and orange blossom all playing second fiddle to wet stone, salt and mineral notes. Great depth and length; powerful yet restrained and tightly wound. A brilliant white.
