Oh so nice white wine
This has to be one of the best summer wines. It's light, fruity, and shimmering taste come alive when it's served really cold. I like to put mine in the freezer until it's about ready to form ice crystals. Perfect for sipping in the hot tub, on a sunny deck, or before the burgers or BBQ come off the grill. Works well with chicken, pork loin, fish, or light pasta dishes. It's sometimes hard to find, so when I do I buy as much as I can because I like to give it away to people who've never tried it. Everyone is amazed and love it. You will too.
A party in a bottle!
What a treasure this inexpensive, effervescent wine is! I found it by accident and now it's a staple at my house. It MUST be well-chilled and is best when drunk once the bottle has been opened. (Try Aveleda's Charamba red---excellent for around $5 a bottle. I've had worse for a lot more money!)
husband liked it so of course i need to buy it again
Americans usually tend to mistake this wine when they compare it to other whites like fumee blanc or even sauvignon blanc.
Vinho Verde, portuguese for green wine is a unique wine from Portugal, and must be only served very chilled, when its special, almost sparkling characteristic is most accentuated.It is a formidably refreshing wine you can drink on your balcony or deck by the pool.
Try it again.
Not sure yet. Give it another try.
At less than $5, and when served well chilled, this is a fun wine - particularly in the sun on the deck in Summer. Decent house white.
For most American wine lovers Portuguese wine means Port, the rich fortified Portugal wine made in the hot, dry Douro Valley in the northern part of the country. But the past decade has witnessed a greater flow of high-quality table wines, mostly red, into the U.S. market.
