This is the first white wine I've ever had from Portugal, and I was impressed by the quality to price ratio this wine presents. Crisp acidity and hints of citrus fruit. I am not sure what the blend of grapes in this wine is, but when I tasted this I thought it was very reminiscent of a pinot grigio. I enjoyed this one.

If you like young white wines, this one is just fantastic. Wonderful fruitiness and acidity. A lower alcohol content and a slight effervescence makes this the perfect bottle to share with someone on a quiet afternoon.

Yeast and salt scents. Spritzy, with a mild lemon flavor. It's a bit tangy on the finish.

Described well by the other reviews, this really is a simple, zesty, crisp youthful wine. Meant to be drunk young, and priced appropriately. Light citrus flavors, with a lean acidic body. Lots of lemons and even some bay leaf notes in the mouth, this is a crisp, clean wine. Would work with shellfish, quiche or similar.

Very crisp and mineral - similar to a sauvignon blanc - cheap and easy drinking. Extremely acidic, gives it a crisp prickliness. Notes of quince, lime and bay leaf.

85 points. The aroma is very soft, with an almost Sauvignon Blanc-like minerality and tartness to it. The nose is not incredibly complex, but there is something about its terroir that makes it very intriguing. There are tones of wet beach sand, white peach, and guava, with some canned nectarine, and the faintest hint of lilies. It opens gently fizzy, with a nice ripeness to the initial white peach tones. There is some strong limestone minerality and a zippy kiwi and kumquat flavor. There is the slightest amount of jasmine and honey, just before the finish, which moves back to something firmly mineral, with just a spritz of lemon. This isn’t the most complex wine that you’re ever going to drink, but its got amazingly fresh structure. The acidity is really nice and sprizty, and there is a very good balance between the mineral tones that level it, and the white peach flavors that play off of its very faint off-sweetness. It’s exceptionally light and fresh, and would make an ideal wine to pop open at a beach party, especially because it has some aromas and flavors that are definitely coastal. A really nice casual wine. Source: What's Worth Drinking: http://whatsworthdrinking.com/2010/07/08/post-39-summer-wine-vinho-verde/

This is the worst Vinho Verde I've ever had. It's all acidity and no fruit. Spend your money elsewhere. Vinho Verde's are great, but this one is not.
