Wine Review: “It’s rare to find a Vinho Verde – the famously light and refreshing “green” white wine of Portugal – that isn’t delightful, but this is one of the best of the breed. And there’s no better time to quaff these wines than in the spring and summer. This version is lightly effervescent, with a lively acidity that wakes up the palate. It combines lime and peach flavors with a whiff of sea breeze. Somehow it manages to be both ethereal and penetrating.– Baltimore Sun”
My Review: Light in color and body.  Aromas of floral and bruised peaches.  Tastes of light lemon and lime.
