Twin Vines Vinho Verde Portugal 2006

Member Review by tommyvino:

Light greenish yellow tinge, aromatic nose of banana peel, exotic tropical fruit and honey. The palate has a ripe papaya like character, intermingled with caramelized banana and drenched in honey. Dry, slightly fizzy, light bodied, bright acidity, and a long mellow finish. Very unique flavors which I very much enjoyed. Very different than any other Moscato I have tasted in the past. 4.5/5

The esteemed Portuguese winery of José Maria da Fonseca is the oldest and one of the most prestigious in all of Europe. The Soares Franco family owns José Maria da Fonseca and has been involved in the wine business for over 160 years. Twin Vines celebrates the May 2007 birth of the twin daughters of António Maria Soares Franco Jr., the newest members of the José Maria da Fonseca family. It is a refreshing white wine from the Vinho Verde region in northwest Portugal. Traditional grape varieties, Loureiro, Trajadura and Pedernã are carefully selected, fermented in temperature controlled conditions and bottled while it still has a refreshing hint of spritz.
