Another good Vinho Verde


Another good Vinho Verde

After recommending a Vinho Verde a couple of days ago, here’s another good-un. This time it is of the spritzy variety, but there’s really nice balance here and some sweetness of fruit to counter the high acidity. It’s very drinkable, especially in the heat.

Tapada de Villar 2012 Vinho Verde, Portugal
Made by Quinta das Arcas, a blend of Louriero, Arinto and Trajadura. 10.5% alcohol. Spritzy, with lovely citrus and pear fruit, plus some grapey richness. Attractive fruit is the key theme here, with some generosity to offset the spritziness. Really drinkable and pure. 88/100 (£6.99 Marks & Spencer)
