Joao Portugal Ramos Vinho Verde
Vinho Verde is in fact a place, and the grapes often worked with in this wine are Loureiro, Arinto and Trajadura. Vinho Verde translated means “green wine” because the wine is produced with minimal aging and meant to be consumed right away. They often will have a slight bubble to them, but not like the effervescence of a true sparkling wine. These are fun, fresh quaffers that are often lower in ABV and meant to be enjoyed with friends - truly a picnic wine. This Vinho Verde is fresh with elegant aroma of citrus and floral notes combined with a pronounced minerality and long intense finish. Best served as an aperitif, chilled, and amongst friends.
