Casal Garcia Vinho Verde 2012
The name "Vino Verde" literally translates to "Green Wine" referring to the light, greenish tint of the wine's color. This white is released only once a year and is meant to be enjoyed while it is young and fresh! The wine has a citrine color and a clear appearance with a ver y delicate and slightly fruity aroma. On the palate this is a fresh, smooth and well-balanced wine.Cheese Pairings: Drunken Goat, Chevre, CheshireFood Pairings: Crab Cakes, Roasted Duck, Sauteed Shelfish
Editorial Reviews for Casal Garcia Vinho Verde
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
Four and a half glasses
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
This wine is almost clear. Hints of lemon. It has some effervescence but not as much as a sparkling wine. Very dry, simple but nice. Great wine for the price point.
A nice easy wine - perfect for warm summer days. A bit tart and has a little fizz. Not for everyone! A great wine for those that are new to drinking wine.
Boring. V Day 2009
Surprisingly tasty for a $6 bottle of wine - very refreshing, a slight fizz when first opening the bottle. Light and clean finish.
