Varietal

100% Verdelho “o Original”, from the islands.

Concept

“Is it Verdelho Verdelho or Verdelho Gouveio?”, the answer might well be “it is Verdelho Verdejo”. Confused? You should be. Many people believe that they have tasted Verdelho, but few have. Gouveio (aka Godello) was for several years wrongly identified has Verdelho generating this huge confusion. Verdelho, Gouveio and Verdejo are 3 distinct grape varietals, often confused. This is the original Verdelho, the one grown on the islands, the one with the mineral taste, and salts that teases the palate, and the one with the unique perfume that made Verdelho be...Verdelho!

Tasting Notes

Mineral and salty attack, it has the grape varietals and Azorean Terroir matrix, but with a much more exhuberant, tropical aroma of the azorean pineapple and passion fruit, fresh fruit with acidity. It’s not the Verdelho-Gouveio, it’s not the Verdelho-Verdejo, it is the Verdelho-Verdelho, the Original.
