Vera Vinho Verde 2013

veravinho

Simple with a jaunty bend of fizz and acidity, this is a good companion with light dishes.

Winemaking: Vera Vinho Verde is the creation of winemakers Rui Abecassis and Bruce Schneider. The wine is produced at Casa do Valle by Luis Duarte, one of Portugal’s “preeminent vignerons”. Grapes were sourced from vines located at an elevation of 1050 feet in sandy loam, granite and schist soils from select blocks of Casa do Valle’s main estate vineyard.

Tasting Notes: Gold in colour with aromas of apple and grapefruit. Apple and lemon notes along with a brazing acidity zipped through the slightly fizzy body, whilst minerals and grassy nuances comprised the clean finish.
