Following on from the success of our popular Portuga Branco, Tinto and Rosé, we were delighted to add this Vinho Verde from Casa Santos Lima to the range. Now in its second vintage, Portuga Vinho Verde has already become a firm customer favourite.
Made by Casa Santos Lima, a Portuguese estate which has been in the same family for four generations and was ranked #1 by Wine Spectator on ‘Wineries for Value’
The winemaker is Diogo Sepúlveda who has worked extensively in wineries around the world including in Pomerol and the Napa Valley
The vineyards benefit from a maritime climate with a cooling Atlantic influence, giving the wines an aromatic intensity combined with freshness and minerality
Tasting note: Slightly off-dry in style, it combines zesty lime, grape and mango flavours with delicate floral hints. At only 11.5% alcohol, it’s a highly refreshing white for summer drinking, both on its own or with seafood.
Averys began in 1793 and over the years, the family has built its reputation as one of the UK's most pioneering wine merchants.
