RKS 2023 Wines: Drinking the Way of the Dinosaur!

Terrantez do Pico is one of three indigenous Azorean grapes and it is close to going the way of the dinosaur.

It has somewhat of a tropical nose with pineapple, guava and mango.

The palate is creamy with tropical notes mixed with spice and just a bit of Prince Edward Island red soil potatoes with a sting of acidity, minerality and salinity. A definite foil for some spicy Azorean seafood.

RKS 2023 Wine Rating 90/100.

Somewhere in the 75 USD range.
