It is a very pale light yellow, greenish colour (thus the name)...which is a little thin looking.
The nose is green as well though this time it is green fruits, light ones. Kiwis and a little lime zest start things off with a nice Granny Smith apple undertone....see green.
When you taste this wine it becomes clear where the Verde comes from. It is a crisp and tart wine like an apple that is three days from becoming ripe. The way the skin puckers your lips is the way the wine acts when you taste it. Pucker then a touch of sweetness then a nice crisp finish. Very nice.
|Sight (0-5)||Very pale yellow with a greenish tinge (cool bottle too)||4.0|
|Smell (0-5)||Green Apple and Kiwi with a hint of lime zest||4.0|
|Taste (0-10)||Light and crisp white with a great tartness to sugar ratio and well worth the $11 we spent locally||8.0|
|Total:|| 16.0 / 20|
We will probably seek out more of these to try in comparison. If you are looking to try Portuguese whites this one is a great place to start. Give it a try.
Keep on drinking!
