Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

100% Loureiro, showing lemon, peach, passionfruit aromatics and seductive passionfruit and citrus zest on a ripe, fruity palate. Mouth-watering acidity and fresh finish; loveliest Vinho Verde I've tasted yet. Terrific value at $12.95! I'll be buying this more than once.
Tasted Jan. 2017
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Solid price performer at just $12.95. Slight effervescence with zippy acidity. Fresh cut green apple, pear, citrus, zest and hint of floral. Light-bodied and lingering tart finish. One of the most pleasant Vinbo Verde I've tasted. Highly recommend. Buy a case and save it for summer sipping.
Tasted: January 2017
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Aromas of tart yellow apple, and lemon with a little pear and white pepper. Bright taste that's a great balance of tart and sweet (although mainly tart ) and tends towards lemon and tart apple.
Sharon Prionas rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Beautiful letter press label. Mango and tropical fruit aromas. Off dry and light effervescence on the palette with tastes of lychee, peaches and granny smith apple.

If you don't have any sparkling wine handy, you could serve this with brunch. I would also pair with spicy curry.
Cora Beaulieu rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Clear and pale straw gold color. Very fresh aromas of apple, pear, sweet peach, tangerine, tropical fruit, white flowers and vanilla - gives away the variety. It has a smooth, yet somewhat crisp taste. It’s fruity and complex. Flavors of fresh tropical fruits and zesty citrus. There’s a touch of spritz about this wine. Lighter body and a pleasing finish. Would complement and not over-power most foods.
