Vinho Verde, the most popular white wine from Portugal, is a deliciously refressing, light wine. "Verde", meaning "Green" refers to the hints of lime color. It is an ideal warm weather wine, excellent for lunch and picnics, or an evening apertif. It makes a brilliant pairing with any fish, shellfish and poultry.
I picked this wine up today, to have before dinner. I will start by saying this bottle has great eye appeal. I love the label, and tall slender bottle. The nose has hints of tangerine, lemon, lime, lemon grass. Broadbent has a taste of lemon and lime right off the bat. In the middle of the palate, I can taste an earthy, grass followed by more lime. Soft finish! overall, a good wine for a warm summer day. After writing this review I made a lemon pesto chicken. This wine was amazing with this dish!
Vinho Verde is a splendid wine. My family and I have enjoyed this wine very much. We first became aware of this wine in Portugal this past April.
Everyone I've served this to has loved it. Some say it tastes like champagne and it is a bit sparkly. Served it well chilled. A very refreshing wine. Enjoy it before dinner and relax. Stands alone, rather than as an enhancement to a meal.
