Lime peel, a little white peach pit and dusty mineral notes with a lightly floral top note greets the nose. This is bright, juicy in the mouth with lovely fruit that is bright with a hint of orange oil over lime flavors and a nice hint of sweetness on the tart finish. Supremely refreshing. 86pts

Well summer has arrived with a vengeance in New York. The humidity is creeping up along with the temperature and that makes me yearn for a light, crisp, refreshing white, and with with modest alcohol please. I'm thinking of wine that well serve not only to refresh the palate, but also the body so there's no need to make it cerebral and the Casal Garcia Vinho Verde does just that. This is simple, sapid wine with clear citrus flavors a touch of effervescence and a cleansing, refreshing acid driven finish. The alcohol is right about 11% so you won't have to worry too much if you end up over indulging, and the best part? This is just a smashing match for the chilled seafood and light fish dishes that the summer beckons for. 85pts

Delicious white wine. So refreshing with notes of lime, grapefruit peel and peach pits. Crisp and clean with a nice acidic finish. Goes great with shrimp. Such a steal for $6.99. I'm going to stock up on this one for next summer

Surprisingly tasty for a $6 bottle of wine - very refreshing, a slight fizz when first opening the bottle. Light and clean finish.

Light, refreshing and slightly "effervescent." Slightly sweet, but not too much for the heat outside. Grapefruit on the nose and grass and citrus on the palate.

Clear, bright with a touch of citrus. This is a perfect wine for the beach or the deck in the dog days of summer!

Interesting clear wine. It had a clean yet dry taste. Great pairing with fish, pasta or cheese. Will be buying this again.

First off this is an excellent value. I have served it to various level of wine drinkers and it has always gone over well. It is a very light straw color, with a slight fizz. It has a light apple, pear flavor initially with a very clean and lingering aftertaste.

Round with grape flavors layered with ginger and smoke, this is a smooth Vinho Verde balanced to serve on its own. It feels complete, a simple white for any summer party.

Its soft and fruity palate turns it into a young, fresh and light companion for pleasant times.

Light-bodied and slightly bubbly, the Casal Garcia is a classic summertime Portuguese white. Soft citrus fruit and lime zest with lots of acidity and a clean finish.

Casal Garcia Vinho Verde is a blend of the native Portuguese varietals Loureiro, Trajadura, Arinto and Azal, from the Vinho Verde appellation of Portugal. It is light yellow-green in color, with a nose of citrus, and a crisp, spritzy acidity. Light in body with no oak and no tannins, Casal Garcia is light and refreshing, and ready to drink!Casal Garcia Vinho Verde is the perfect accompaniment to seafood and fruit salads. Enjoy!

Casal Garcia Vinho Verde has wonderful floral aromas and flavors of tangy lemon, peach and green apple, followed by a crisp, clean finish that has a slight effervescence.

Rich depth of flavor, crisp green apple, fresh squeezed lemon, with a very subtle effervescence and a lengthy finish on the palate.

Experience Carnival while appreciating this elegant and refreshing wine. Floral nose, light on the palate, bringing a party to your mouth with zesty apple and citrus flavors and serious mineral tones that complement the wine. This is a real summertime and anytime drinking wine. Desfrutar de meus amigos (enjoy my friends)!

<p>A delicate and well-balanced wine. Some tropical fruit with a bit of minerality. Great with seafood.</p>
