A crushable bottle straddling the line between red and rosé.
Vinhao, a dark red native grape, is treated light and blended with white varietals for a silky, light-yet-musky, wild-fruit-and-flower wine that punches with acid. The body is mellow, but the complexity is not. An “oh damn” bottle that will surely get you into Portuguese wines, if you’re not already.
- Vinho Verde isn’t just a white—it’s a region where this lovely wine is made and other traditional Portuguese grapes are grown.
- Spontaneous co-fermentation adds liveliness.
