Adega de Moncao Vinho Verde Branco

, 2009

Portugal

Vinho Verde 75cl

The new vintage is with us, a delicious Vinho Verde. From the best sub region for Vinho Verde- Moncao. It's bottled in a traditional brown flute which means it's not the best packaged. It's a blend of the region's premium grape Alvarinho and Trajadura. Fresh aromatic nose with sherbet-like lime and some stone fruit in this vintage too. Has a fair bit of spritz to it, it's dry, lively and tangy. Lovely lime and subtle white peach fruit on the palate with a touch of classic saline. Really crisp and refreshing, it's a little riper this year with a greater weight of fruit and up half a degree of alcohol at 11.5%, but still a great aperitif. One of the best i have tried, and a great summer quaffer, or with some really fresh simply prepared fish. Just off dry and way too easy to drink.
