Quinta da Aveleda-Vinho Verde Fonte White Blend Portugal Minho 2009
This is a slightly fizzy, young wine that is packed with fruit and mineral flavors. There are subtle orange blossom, citrus and peach skin notes with a touch of smoky minerality. The tartness will round out with a few months of bottle age. It bounces from the glass... crisp and refreshing. Pair with fried fish.
Actually, 3.25 stars. Color, this wine has a clean nice light color. On the nose, I am picking some tropical fruits, some floral aromas going on, lime and limon. Midpalate, it is very clean, very crisp, fresh. This wine indeed has a soled character. Finish, not really long, but smooth and nice. This wine is well made and balanced. For $7.99 this is the way to go. I always say Portugal is the way to go for quality vs price. I am 89+ on this effort. This wine is bottled at 10%. Happy drinking!
I am in love with this wine! This is an excellent wine for sunny and warm days. Great Balance, good finish without overwhelming the palate. If you combine this wine with seafood you will have an awesome experience. The price is great. Flavorful a bit citric, excellent choice for outside gatherings.
Inexpensive but very good. Excellent summer time wine!
This is truly my summer time wine. It is light and refreshing.
I just had this fab wine at a portuguese restaurant I cannot get it off my palate...a wonderful wine
love this wine with fish and pasta's - bursts with flavor

Winemaker's Notes:Aveleda is presented in a very special way, in a slender bottle with a label that takes us back in time. It is produced in our winery with grapes exclusively from the Vinho Verde Region the most extensive in Portugal. The careful temperature control during the winemaking process produces a wine that is slightly citrine in color, clear and bright. It's delicate and fruity aroma gives it a smooth, gentle flavor.
