K&L Notes

Casal García is one of Vinho Verde giant Quinta de Aveleda's labels. They produce a lot of wine, but they are extremely organized, quality oriented, and produce the first rosé I ever tasted from the Vinho Verde region. Produced from Azal tinto, barraçal, and Vinhao grapes. Like white vinho verde, this is slightly effervescent, fresh, invigorating stuff. Just a hint of residual sugar balances out the red fruit, acidity, and fizz. Chill this one and drink it in warm weather for a real treat.

This is almost adult soda pop. Bright, fresh with a touch of effervescence and just a kiss of sweetness. This wine disappears like iced tea on a hot day!

Additional Information:

Country:

Portugal

- 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.
