Reviews and Ratings

Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Tasting this wine brought back fond memories for me. For my 50th birthday eight years ago my husband and I made a trip to Portugal. I brought back a bottle of the Vinho Verde and had more or less forgotten about it. Surprisingly it was still very fresh and crisp. In eight years this bottle had deepened in hue and was not as pale as a young Vinho Verde. There were aromas of lemon and lime and it had still maintained it's effervescent fizz. Tart green apple flavours were still quite evident. If I closed my eyes and sipped slowly I could picture myself back on a white sandy beach in the Algarve. Tasted November 27, 2016.
Neil Phillips rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Almost water-white, with only a hint of straw.

Slight spritz on the palate, a refreshing summer sipper at a lower alcohol level. Lemon, Granny Smith apple

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.
