Quinta Da Raza Alvarinho Trajadura Vinho Verde 2016 Product #33085 (In Stock)
Quinta Da Raza Alvarinho Trajadura Vinho Verde 2016 Quinta Da Raza Alvarinho Trajadura Vinho Verde 2016

If you think about Vinho Verde at all, you probably think of light-bodied, tart and tangy, whites with a prickle of gas to enjoy in mid-summer heat with cold shrimp or a salad.  But this blend of Portugal’s Vinho Verde region’s two best grapes – Alvarinho and Trajadura is a bit more and better than that.  In fact, in the nearly perfect 2016 growing season, it’s a wine that both exemplifies and transcends its home and style.  It’s a Vinho Verde for drinking all year ‘round. 

Pour a glass and you’ll admire the clear, crisp, light yellow/green color (while “Vinho Verde” really means “young wine,” there’s definitely a touch of green tint here, too).  Give it a swirl and you’ll love the big, ripe, aromas of peach, apricot and orange blossom that really scream “Summer!” even on a cool, cloudy, day.  And then your first sip fills your mouth with zesty orange citrus fruit, mid-summer peach, and a hint of something floral lifted by a very light prickle of CO2.  The ripe, fresh, fruit flavors pick up a hint of just squeezed lime as salty, stony, selzer-like minerality comes up on the mouthwatering finish.  It’s delightfully delicious.
