Tart, fresh, lemony, slighty fizzy find. Steam some clams in this with garlic, onions, butter and herbs while sipping a glass on the side. Don't forget to buy some crusty bread for dipping in broth!
my first vinho verde. maybe I'm not ready yet, or maybe it's simply too dry for my taste.
This is honestly THE WORST vinho verde I have ever tasted. There is nothing going on here but acidity; No balance, no fruit, nothing. Spend your money elsewhere.
External Reviews for Fonseca Twin Vines Vinho Verde
A spritzy, fresh and vibrant white wine that boasts meyer lemons, zesty tangy limes and white flowers. A fruity and light-bodied white wine that's forever on our list of warm weather musts.
Crisp apples, touched with some sweetness, but finely clean and fresh, this is a great aperitif style of Vinho Verde, finishing with just a sparkle. Screwcap.
The perfect summer apéritif, this light, fresh, crisp wine tastes just drier than previous vintages, allowing the apple and lemon fruits to shine even more. It has a tight, taut aftertaste, leaving the mouth clean and refreshed.
