Vinho Verde Arca Nova Loureiro Colheita 2012 Quick Sip
My quarterly sample taste from Vinho Verde was another enjoyable inexpensive sipper from Portugal. Digging the tropical character of the wine.
On the nose lime citrus, honeydew melon, tangerine with a hint of lemon zest. Crisp and fresh. The mouth is full of mineral notes, tangerine with a dominant lime and honeydew melon emphasis. Hints of white peach and apricot as you continue to taste. The finish is nice and juicy.
The wines of Vinho Verde are fun enjoyable everyday wines that won't break the bank. Sold at most retail wine shops. Give them a taste!
