Famega Vinho Verde 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

This refreshing, crisp and lively has a taste of apple tartness from the cool luscious Vinho Verde DOC region of North Western Portugal. Famega Vinho Verde has a delicate citrus flavor like the fragrance of a summer garden. Pleasant and fresh, 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:
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.

Light, little bubbly....not memorable but good for the price.

I think for the price that the wine is, it is very good. It is well balanced in acidity, and has just the right amount of fizz. It is refreshing and has lots of grassy, not-too-sweet fruit notes to it. It's a lot better than any other white wine you can buy for this price.

88pts - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar "...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..."
