Famega Vinho Verde 2009
Refreshing, crisp with a tingly sparkle taste of apple tartness from the cool lucious Vinho Verde DOC region of North Western Portugal. Fâmega Vinho Verde has a delicate citrus flavor like the fragrance of a summer garden. Pleasant and mellow, this young white wine will be the perfect accompaniment to all kinds of seafood, salads, mild cheeses, as an aperitif, or just by itself.
Famega is a wine produced by Caves de Cerca in Portugal. They specialize in Vinho Verde, an inexpensive, light, dry, refreshing, low alcohol, slightly fizzy wine that’s great with a variety of light cuisines and seafood, especially on a hot day. They also produce a zesty rosé counterpart, all from indigenous Portuguese grapes.
External Reviews for Famega Vinho Verde
Pale straw. Fresh pear, quince, anise and lime zest on the nose. Fizzy and bracingly crisp on the palate, the bright apple and citrus flavors showing impressive cut and energy. Finishes firm, long and delicious, with lingering notes of minerals and citrus peel.
This is a reserve cuvée from Famega, created for the Premier Group, with markedly more flavor intensity and a slightly fuller texture than typical, while still retaining the freshness and delicate spritz that makes Vinho Verde the perfect summer wine, good for cocktails, great with seafood.
Nice and refreshing with a little bit of spritz on the tongue. The taste is light with some citrus and melon flavors. Good before-dinner aperitif.
This spritzy, simple wine has citrus scents of clementine driven by a pulse of CO2. For the beach.
Crisp and refreshing fruit with inviting herbal aromas on the nose and a medium-length, honeyed finish.
A low-alcohol (9.5%), apéritif style of Vinho Verde, which certainly has some sweetness, but which also balances it with plenty of crisp, green fruit flavors.
Crisp, clean with zesty citrus and mineral flavors. A pleasantly smoky note enters on the finish providing added dimension.
