UNESCO world heritage vines planted on a volcano in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. The rocky soils next to the waterfront are in essence worthless, except for growing vines. The extraordinary Azores Wine Company was set up in 2014 by charismatic rugby-playing, surfing winemaker António Maçanita with just 12 hectares of vines, some 100-years-old. This Verdelho, an Azorean native variety not to be confused with the grape of the same name from Madeira, is mineral and salty on the attack, revealing tropical passion fruit and pineapple, and a crisp, long finish. Just 5,000 bottles made. A remarkable wine and a remarkable achievement.
One of Decanter magazine's Wines of the Year 2017.
