Salty wines are those that, because they are produced in regions near the sea, present notes of salt, iodine or sargassum. They are normally wines with great freshness and tension. They are found in coastal or island regions, such as the wines of the Azores, Madeira or Colares.

 

Salinity

Salinity is a descriptor for wines that originate from regions near the sea. The vines planted in coastal regions or islands capture water that is often brackish (mixture of fresh water and salt water). In Pico wines, the brackish water is absorbed through the roots and iodine from the sea winds through their leaves, because the vines are planted so close to the sea you can hear the crabs sing.
