Vinho Verde is just as commonly a blend a of indigenous Portuguese grapes as it is a single varietal wine and here we have one such example of harmony. The wine is a pale lemon colour, with the intense citrus fruit notes of Arinto and the delicious, floral aromas of Loureiro. Yields are kept tightly in-check for the latter variety (which can have a tendency to over-crop, producing dilute wines of little character and substance) and the finished wine is alive with lemon, apple, greengage and orange blossom. The tell-tale spritz of CO2 only adds to the eminent drinkability and superb freshness of the wine.
