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.
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!
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.
This wine is light and refreshing with a hint of carbonination. Its great by itself or with a seafood dish.
Light & Crisp
The slight effervescence makes this wine fun to drink. Great for parties and large groups as the clean bright lemon/lime acidity pairs with most appetizers and will satisfy brunch champagne cravings. I made a cocktail with this for a bridal shower with 1 part fresh blood orange juice and 4 parts vino verde, and I had everyone begging me for the recipe. I told them it was a secret so please, keep it that way. I have not had a vino verde I prefer over this one, which is why I gave it 5 stars, as I think it shines as an example of the varietal. I don't feel too bad adding juice or bitters to it as it is not particularly complex or expensive.
Light & Crisp
I drank this wine on the first day of summer. We have been waiting a long time for some warm weather up in the U.P. (upper peninsula of MI)! It finally arrived today. This wine paired perfectly with my dinner of Lake Michigan whitefish! I will be ordering some more.
Light & Crisp
Delicious, refreshing, light white! It bubbles across the palate - could be my new Summer favorite! Great value - and a lovely label, to boot!
This sparkling white is a must have for home and for a gift. I ordered a case twice and am almost out already! It is a perfect balance with not too much bubble. It is not sweet and not too dry. Splendid! AND the label is beautiful. Every person I gave it to loved it.
I really like the crisp freshness of this wine. It has a slight sparkle and pairs well with lighter fare.
Awesome Vinho Verde for the price , crisp ,,and well balanced , great for a sunny evening.
Crisp, lightly fruity and some bubles at the end that make this an excellent Summer wine.
