Fresh and perky with a modest alcohol content, this is a good value and fantastic addition to brunch and light dishes.
Estate: Casa de Vilacetinho is located in Alpendurada, in the Vinho Verde region of northwest Portugal. The estate consists of 30 hectares of vineyards with granite soils that overlook the River Douro.
Wine making: The winery is “state of the art”, yet many traditional methods are used to insure the wine is a natural reflection of their unique terrior.
Tasting Notes: Pale gold in colour with aromas of red apples and minerals. Subtle apple, pineapple and ginger notes wrapped around a delicate mineral core, backed by a slight effervescence, good acidity, and pleasantly dry finish.
*I could not find either vintage year or ‘non vintage’ on the label, it appears from their website it may be 2012, but I’m not confident to enough to include it.
