Get to know: Casa de Vilacetinho, Grande Escolha Vinho Verde
Really fabulous Vinho Verde that will instant remind you of summer holidays. It has an attractive aroma that offers citrus, white plum and peach mixed with tropical and lemongrass notes following on to a vibrant refreshing palate with lots of fruit and a refined minerally note.
Try this with grilled fish in a spicy rub.
"I love the wines from here, it’s a gorgeous place to go in Northern Portugal where it’s cooler so you get bright acidity and lower alcohol. It’s got a little spritz and has really refreshing citrussy notes but also tropical characters."
This 30 hectare estate overlooking the river Douro is one of the oldest and most prestigious of the Vinho Verde region. Whilst the brand was established in 1950 they have been producing wines on the estate since 1790. In 1957 one of the estate wines was chosen to be served to Queen Elizabeth II during her visit to Portugal. The wines are made using traditional techniques but using modern technology in a state of the art winery.
A blend of Avesso, Arinto, Azal and Loureiro.
This wine is suitable for consumption by Vegetarians and Vegans.
