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.
