A lovely, honeydew fresh dessert wine from northern Portugal. Not cloyingly sweet, more like moscato d'asti in freshness and natural fruit sweetness with aromas of peach and pear. Match with fruit cobbler.

Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A lovely off dry Vinho Verde. Declared 9% ABV. Green melon and honeysuckle. Medium bodied. Great for summer patio wine activity, appetizers at deluxe pool parties and easily as a summer supper at the beach or lake. Tasted April 2017. 88 points. Great value crowd pleaser.
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Ripe peach, honeydew melon, citirus, medium body with sweet, honey finish. Pair with peach cobbler and whipped cream. Tasted April 25, 2017.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Sweet lime and talcum power on the nose; off-dry, lime, peach, honey on the palate. A nice acidic zip cuts through the sweet and low alcohol makes it a pleasant sipping wine.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
