2009 Quinta da Aveleda Vinho Verde

SKU #1073617

90 points Wine Enthusiast:  "Now in a smart clear blue bottle, this is Aveleda’s estate wine. It is always a classic, with just some extra weight to give it distinction. The flavors are apple, brightened with lime, finishing with vibrant acidity." (8/1/2010) According to the Wine Spectator: "A juicy white, with apple and citrus flavors that feature crunchy mineral notes. The lively finish features some floral elements. Drink now." (09/10)

An ideal everyday white; light, refreshing, with surprising intensity. It seems to go with everything.

2009 has been a wonderful year for whites in Spain and Portugal, and the Quinta Aveleda is not an exception. This wine is always one of my favorite Summer time sippers, crisp clean, vibrantly refreshing, this year it has a wonderfully heightened sense of texture, weight and depth. Open a bottle with friends on a warm afternoon and enjoy this exceptional value from Portugal.

It's back!! One of the greatest joys of summer; sipping on an ice cold bottle of Vinho Verde, snacking on light finger foods and watching the world go by from you front porch or watching the grass grow in your backyard. Maybe some friends on the way over and/or something on the grill. One of mankind's most refreshing beverages, and the Quinta da Aveleda is and exceptional example of it. CM

Pure and fresh, this is a delicious dry white wine. Vinho Verde is one of Portugal's most popular white wines, probably because the good ones like this are so smooth, light, and easy to drink.

a very light wine, but very very dry. I like dry wine but this is dry without much character. I don't really taste much of a finish, but sometimes I suppose you might want a simple wine.
it's got just a touch of floral on the tongue, but not enough to win my heart.
