VINHO VERDE – PORTUGUESE WHITE

The Vinho Verde wine region, beginning just south of the Portuguese-Spanish border, is a group of nine sub-regions in the Douro Valley. Each has a unique micro-climate on mostly granitic soils. White Vinho Verde is very fresh and fruity with floral aromas, and shows lots of natural acidity, depending on the grape varieties used. The wines are lemon-straw in color, and usually made from local grape varieties—Loureiro, Arinto, Trajadura, Avesso, and Azal. Lower alcohols, ranging from 8.5% to 11%, are what make them great for summer sipping.
