2010 Adegas Cooperativos de Monção "Muralhas" Rosé Vinho Verde (Previously $10)

SKU #1070289

Just like white vinho verde, this is made with a light touch, a bit fizzy, with delicious freshness and a charming "drink me now" quality. Fresh berry aromas and flavors are livened up with a little bit of spritz and just the barest hint of sweetness. Produced from indigenous grapes such as Alvarelhao, Pedral and Vinhao.

Think of this as a fun poolside or picnic rose. Some residual sugar but cleaned up on the finish with the acidity. Strawberry flavors with the spritzy mouth feel. Try this with some light spicy food and you won't be disappointed

This fruity, slightly spritzy rose from the Vinho Verde region of Portugal made from a blend of traditional Portuguese grape varietals was a clear winner at our recent staff rose tasting. It has a lovely vibrant pink color and enticing bouquet of sun-kissed raspberries and green melon. Racy acidity and a bit of spritz makes this slightly off-dry, fizzy wine finish clean and pure. Lower in alcohol (11% abv), this wine is very food-friendly and can be enjoyed on many differnt occasions - poolside, at a picnic, bbq, taken out to your favorite restaurant on a warm evening - whatever. You will want to have more than one bottle on hand - trust me!

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.
