Excellent & original, if a touch light on spritz
This Vinho Verde is made from an unusual blend of Loureiro, Trajadura, Arinto and Fernão Pires and is claimed to be made from grapes harvested at night to keep their aromas. The result is firstly a wine that is actually green, unlike most wines bearing the “verde” name (most makers play to this green identity by using light blue bottles through which their otherwise yellow wines appear as green). Secondly the wine has an unusual depth of flavour and is distinctly dry, being always balanced with a certain limey acidity.
So this is definitely a wine that’s worth trying as something a little different. My only quibble with it is the spritz is light and dies away quickly. This appears to be a house style, also shown in Aveleda’s Casal Garcia range, which is similarly sealed with a cork. But some I think will enjoy this the more for that.
Or this drink may well be available from your high street supplier – we’re sorry we cannot check them all but you might like to.
