Vinho Verde

Vinho Verde is a Portuguese wine from the Minho region in the far north of the country. The name literally means "Green Wine", referring to its youthful freshness rather than its color. Indeed, there are red vinhos verdes, although they are hardly ever found outside of Portugal. Vinhos Verdes are light, fresh, often slightly fizzy, and intended for drinking within a year, although producers are increasingly making a more serious and complex style of wine destined to show the appellation's potential. Vinho Verde is very fresh, due its natural acidity, with fruity and floral aromas, depending of the grape variety. The white wines have a light lemon or straw colour, and are made from local grape varieties Alvarinho, Loureiro, Arinto, Trajadura, Avesso and Azal.
