Vinho Verde, Portugal
Aliança Vinho Verde is a blend of the best local white grape varieties from the Vinho Verde region of Portugal, including Loureiro, Trajadura, Pederna, and Azal. Vinho Verde means 'green wine' and is both the name of the wine and the name of the region. Stylistically, all Vinho Verdes are light, clean, fresh, and citrusy. Effervescence is added to Vinho Verde wines to increase their shelf life. The U.S. is currently the world's largest importing country for Vinho Verde wines.
Aliança Vinho Verde is a crisp, dry, slightly effervescent, light-bodied white wine with a pale yellow-green color. It has youthful, floral, aromas of citrus, fresh watermelon, apple, elderflower, and tropical notes. Moderately intense on the palate with flavors of lemon, green apple, and peach. Crisp and refreshing on the finish.
Enjoy Aliança Vinho Verde as the perfect spring/summer apéritif wine and with oysters, filet of sole, grilled shrimp, sushi, and summer salads.
