Twin Vines Vinho Verde DOC Portugal 2008

Member Review by Mark Angelillo:

Concord grape jelly and jolly rancher aromas with just a touch of citrus spice. Palate is light, light bodied, slightly oily with melon, peach and kiwi. Refreshing.

Minerally, green apple, notable acids with minimal aromas.

Ripe fruit, in a good way, with plum, apple, blackberries, and apricots. The mouth is noticeably acidic, and very mildly tannic. Overall it's pretty well balanced, and the smokey oak flavors provide a nice finish.

More of that unique metallic dusty dark fruit nose I'm learning is the calling card of Touriga Nacional. Mixed perfectly with the syrah, resulting in a spice and blood bath, although pleasant. There's some potpourri and zin-like chalky sweetness on the finish. I'm digging this.

Sweet light melons on the nose. Tart and sweet up front but with a light body that's a bit demure. A light dusting of smarties on the finish. Nice.

Very pale in color. Very light and dry. Slight fizz. Great for a hot day outside.

I love low alcohol wines in the summer. Dry with some fizz...very nice.
