Espiral Vinho Verde 2006
Added Aug 16, 2007 at 5:18pmThis is one of my favorites when I can find it at TJ's. Super crisp sparkler. A friend of mine describes this style of wine as the Sprite of the wine world. It's not complex or subtle, but you can easily knock back a whole bottle sitting on the patio on a hot day. If this was a beer, I'd call it a lawnmower beer. Great, fun and dirt cheap. I paid $3.99 for the bottle.
Added Aug 16, 2007 at 9:43amI picked up a bottle of this after reading about the awards it won at the California State Fair. I honestly wasn't all that crazy about it. I drink Chuck's Shiraz pretty regularly, and like it for what it is. The chard just didn't get it done for me. It had a resin flavor that just fouled up the balance. Oddly, after it sat in my fridge for a couple of days after opening, it seemed to taste rounder and was more drinkable.
