DescriptionFew wines are as refreshing and spring-like than the crisp vinho verdes of northeastern Portugal. Pale, shimmering and low in alcohol, they refresh and revive the spirit on warm sunny days. This vibrant, classically-styled vinho verde from AlianĂ§a sports a pale green-gold robe followed by scents of lemon, lime, honeydew melon and chervil. On the palate, the wine sports a refreshing dose of dissolved CO2 alongside notes of freshly squeezed lime juice, green melon, salty minerality and a hint of clover honey. Crunchy and minerally on the finish, the wine's lightness and lilt, combined with its brisk acidity, wakes up the palate and prepares it for another bite of fresh seafood, calamari, light salads or pasta tossed in an olive oil sauce. A terrific wine to welcome the warmer weather, we suggest enjoying this through the summer and into the early fall. Delicious, textbook vinho verde!
