Vinho Verde - Natural Mystic - Vinho Verde - Portugal
Quintas do Homem
Vinho Verde is a well-known DOC in the Minho region of northwest Portugal. The quality of the wines made here are so fresh and light that they earn the moniker verde ('green'), which applies even to the red. The vast majority of Vinho Verde wines are white. Six grapes (you’ve never heard of) dominate the regional blend: Alvarinho, Arinto, Azal, Avesso, Loureiro, and Trajadura. Vinho Verde wines range slightly in style, but most are a touch fizzy, mostly dry, and have green fruit notes.
The wine is low in alcohol yet decidedly fresh, energetic and vibrant. Think pink grapefruit, gooseberry, lemon peel and blossom. Vinho Verde goes with salads, grilled fish and is incredible with fish tacos.
