Vinho Verde

Vinho Verde, a region producing red and white wines but mainly famous for the refreshing whites.
On a memorable sailing trip in Portugal sailing from Faro to Lisbon, we stopped off at lovely little ports along the coast drinking lots of vinho verde with sardines.

2007 Quinta Azevedo
Single estate Vinho Verde.
Lovely Aromatic and refreshing summer white.
Clean and clear white With a slight fizz and a touch of citrus, green apple like acidity.
on the nose there is lime, grapefruit and pears with a slight floral perfume.
There is crisp finish to this elegant wine.
93/100
