2014 Vinho Verde


This Vinho Verde is a blend of Loureiro (50%), Azal (25%) and Avesso (25%) grapes that were hand harvested from vines grown in granite soil.  The must was fermented slowly in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature (59 degrees Fahrenheit) for between 10 and 15 days.  The result is a refreshing white wine, light pale yellow in color, that displays aromas and flavors of peach and orange blossom with a streak of minerality that makes for a bracing wine with well-balanced acidity and a freshness that carries through to a crisp and clean finish.  When served chilled, this wine pairs well with all types of seafood (including sushi), salads and light meals. 11.5% ABV QUI
