Aveleda Casal Garcia Vinho Verde Branco 2008 sponsored wine review by Billy
Nose:lime citrus and minerals on the nose
Palate:small spritzig with a dry palate, rich acids and mineral textures that burst then quickly fade.
Overall:Special thanks to Sar Perlman of Portugal Wines for making this sample available to us at the Wine Cask Blog for review! This is an inexpensive wine from Portugal - the Vinhos Verdes ("green wine") Region in the north of Portugal. This is a good event wine with the dry palate and almost but not quite bubbles and the mineral textures. It is not buttery or cloying like some other whites you might get served as a guest at a party. This wine was delightful before dinner with light snacks.
Raise a Glass!
