Frei Gigante, Ilha do Pico 2018

£24.50 GBP

Pico Island, is an island in the Central Group of the Portuguese Azores. Pico is many hundreds of miles away from the western coast of Portugal. 

This wine has a great story too, it was named after the monk who planted the first vines on these islands, the wine is a blend of all three of the main varieties found on Pico, made in stainless steel with temperature control and a short ageing on fine lees.

Its a brilliant and laser like wine, fast acidity and citrus fruit. It has a wonderful salinity and feel to the wine too.
