2010 Vinho Verde Grinalda White Wine Portugal

Breaking from the usual California or Oregon wine region reviews, I tasted this sample (shipped to me last month) produced in Portugal. Grinalda is a crisp refreshing white wine which I really enjoyed.

On the nose ripe pear, fresh melon, juicy peach with hints of citrus zest. Nice tropical fruit notes as the wine warms.

The wine is full of flavor. Pear dominates the taste with with the white peach towards the middle. The finish is a combination of juicy lemon and mineral notes. Priced around $12 an excellent sipping wine for the patio party or as the evening starter wine. Grab a bottle today.
