2011 Adega Cooperativo Regional de Monção "Trajarinho" Vinho Verde
Back again is this delicious Vinho Verde: fizzy, ripe and juicy, while maintaining a refreshing dryness; warm weather white wine does not get much better than this! This is one of our favorites: crisp, citric, relatively low in alcohol and in a classically dry style. Don't let the deliciousness fool you, though; this white offers up a whole lot more complexity than the humble price might suggest. More than likely, one could attribute this amazing quality to two factors: First, the rock solid reputation and focus on quality of the Adega Cooperativo Regional de Monšao; and second, their reliance on Trajadura and Alvarinho grapes, which deliver wine of greater complexity and texture than the Pader˝a grape so commonly grown in the rest of the Vinho Verde region.
