Vinho Verde is practically synonomous with easy drinking, low alchol wine that's especially nice to drink in warmer weather. While Vinho Verde is means 'green wine' in Portuguese, it does not mean green as in the color green. Rather it is called 'green wine' because it young. In other words, the wine is meant to be consumed within a few months after it's produced. This is a blend of native Portuguese grapes Espadeiro and Vinhao. This thirst quenching fruity pink wine has flavors and aromas of red berries, lemon and lime. Nice on its own, with shellfish, garden salads and cold sandwiches.
