Azores Wine Co.

António Macanita Açores Verdelho

Volcanic Verdelho do Pico (different from the Portuguese mainland Verdelho, also known as Godello in Spain) from vineyards located on 3 different islands - Pico, Graciosa and S. Miguel- in the Azores archipelago. Virtually at sea level and unusually close to the Ocean, vines grow on very poor volcanic basalt soils, surrounded by traditional stone-walled “currais” to protect them from the extreme Atlantic winds. Salty and mineral. Thirst-quenching acidity. Passion fruit. 🌋 🌋 — 7 days ago

Reserva Madeira Verdelho 1912

Dark amber with a yellowish tint. Heat in the nose. Notes of molasses and burnt sugar. High alcohol content in the mouth. Burns the nostrils. Fun finish to the evening tho. (Bday dinner 13/13) — 21 days ago

Pagos del Galir Valdeorras Godello 2017

This was my first experience with the Iberian Godello grape. I expected something quite fruity from this wine, but was surprised to find a nose of lanolin, sage and a savory nuttiness. The palate is just as intriguing, with savory herbs and a distant grapefruit flavor in the background. — a month ago
