2012 Quinta da Aveleda Vinho Verde

SKU #1130290 92 points Wine & Spirits

 Careful viticulture takes the fruit of this estate-grown wine into bright scents of lime, white rose and pink grapefruit, with a mouthwatering persistence of flavors that sets it apart. It's easy to drink a lot of this, chilled for a June wedding or July at the shore. I know of no other wine in the world that offers the fragrant pleasures of this white for anything close to $9.

 The Aveleda estate is the source of the fruit for this dry, delicious Vinho Verde. It’s a reference for the food-friendly, lemon and grapefruit style, adding minerality and a taut texture to the forward fruitiness. Drink this summer, or hold for up to six months. Aveleda Imports. Best Buy. —R.V.  (8/2013)

K&L Notes

A perennial staff and customer favorite, this Vinho Verde continues to deliver the goods, the fizzy, citrus-drenched, delicious goods. If you're looking for a poolside, picnic or patio sipper, this wine never disappoints.

This lovely, bright, and refreshing white from Portugal offers up lovely aromas of lime zest and wet river stone mineral notes that carry over nicely to its lively, mildly spritzy [intended], crisp and dry, and mouthwatering flavor profile and finish. The Bean wants cases of this lovely Gem at our house because it is the perfect wine to match with shellfish. 11.5% ABV
Drink from 2013 to 2015

The Quinta Da Aveleda Vinho Verde is bright and fresh, full of clean crip flavors. It is dry with a slight hint of fizz to liven it up and make it so fun and easy to drink. Great alone, it will go well with salad or lighter fish.

Sprightly goodness is back! Yet another delightfully quaffable, lime zest and mineral driven vinho verde. Medium plus acidity and low alcohol at 11.5% and a killer deal at $8.99!

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
