Like a lot of Portuguese wines these days, this little gem is very affordable for its quality at just under $10. This Vinho Verde varietal is very refreshing right from the pour, with a clarity and a bit of sparkle that is true to its crispness.
Although not bursting out of the glass, the aromas of grapefruit and a bit of apples give you a preview of how refreshing this wine will be.
At first taste, you are alerted by the nice level of acidity and zest, but it remains very light on the tongue. Doesn't have a lot of length, but I just used that as an excuse to go back to the glass for more.
