Quinta Da Aveleda Vinho Verde 2009

This Portuguese beauty is one of my favorite white wines, and definately my favorite summer wine I have come across. It’s light and refreshing, tart and acidic. It has a slight effervescence to it that cleanses the palate. It’s a great drinking wine but can easily be turned into an amazing Sangria using tonnes of citrus fruit and some peach schnapps. Don’t pass this by at $11.99 it’s an absolute steal!

NSLC Tasting Notes: Known as the green wine of Portugal, Vinho Verde such as this offers delicate floral, mineral and green fruit aromas and flavours. Its light, slightly spritzy taste make it the perfect aperitif.
