Wine Advocate, 91 Points 

"The 2019 Branco Vulcânico is mostly Arinto dos Açores, with 15% Verdelho. It is unoaked and comes in at 11.6% alcohol. Bright and a little mouth puckering, this is another nice performance—and for a bit less money. It is just beautiful, and it holds its own pretty well with the regular Arinto, which seems fairly similar in style. Elegant, fresh and lively, it dances across the tongue with a light touch in terms of weight, but it enlivens the palate with its acidity. There's a hint of spice on the finish. It's probably the least concentrated of the whites this issue, but its lively demeanor makes it enticing. This blend is a relatively good value point in the lineup. " 

Wine Enthusiast, 90 Points 

"This blend of Arinto and Verdelho is rich, hinting now at toastiness while retaining plenty of taut fruitiness. Ripe and full of complex layers of flavors, the wine is ready to drink."  

Winemaker Notes: 

"Light straw with notes of green around the rim. On the nose, tropical but intensely maritime, with pineapple and passion fruit interwoven with seaweed, wet stone and sea spray. Salty and intensely mineral driven on the palate, with a surprising depth of fruit that is balanced by the minerality and focused acidity through the middle." 

Alcohol: 12%
