Quinta da Aveleda White Blend Vinho Verde 2009
We invite you to taste this new refreshing white wine from Portugal. From the website: The wine has a citrine color and a clear, bright appearance. It is a complex, delicate and persistent wine, well-balanced and with the presence of tropical fruits and slight floral notes. Ideal as an appetizer or to accompany fish, Italian cuisine or light meat dishes. Serve between 10 and 12C. Grape varieties: Alvarinho, Loureiro and Trajadura.
Great summer wine. Light, fresh, good acid. Goes well with any kind of spicy food. 88 pts.
Fizzy, some interesting fruits - peach and apples - nice and refreshing. Not bad, especially for such a cheap wine
Great crisp white for the warm summer months. Not a lot going on on the nose or palate, but at this price point, it makes a very nice aperitif.
Has a floral nose, almost like moscato, however with a more citrus taste than expected (because of the aroma) and a fizzy texture. Nice, would be great with food, especially something creamy.
Not terribly complex, but damn delicious! I had a party and went through 13 bottles of this. Wine-drinkers, non-wine-drinkers, and "red only" people all loved it! It went with everything from bbq chicken to italian sausage, to burgers, to snacks, and on it's own. I really love this wine. Just wish I picked up 2 or 3 cases instead of 1!
Perhaps it is all about the context (I drank this wine sitting on rooftop overlooking Chicago on a hot July afternoon), but I enjoyed this effervescent vinho verde. It's citrusy and bright with a bit of creaminess and a white flower fragrance. Not particularly complex but a great summer wine.
