Fine Portuguese Green wines from
Portuguese green wine is otherwise known as Vinho Verde which refers to wine that originates in the far north of Portugal. Vinho Verde is not a grape variety but reference to its origin, only wine from this region can carry the title of Vinho Verde.
The name means "green wine," but translates as "young wine", with some wines being released three to six months after the grapes are harvested. Oddly enough, Vinho Verde comes in many forms including red and rosé.
A Vinho Verde can also be a sparkling or even Brandy, but the most popular labels are typically light whites – that are almost green in complexion – and ever so slightly effervescent, giving a wonderful light fizz to the experience.
Experience the flavours with Mark Blezard and Iberian Green Ltd.
Stop press: new trip planned for Estreito de Câmara de Lobos to bring some wines directly back. Standby!
Quinta da Aveleda
One of our favorite wines, a bright yellow with greenish reflections and wonderful floral hints. A classic Vinho Verde, animating acidity with a playful lightness. A fresh but fulfilling wine.
Seixoso Rosé, Quinta da Lixa
This wonderful rosé carries fresh raspberries and cherries. It is fresh to the palate and with the traditional 'tingle' of a Vinho Verde.
Portal da Calçada, Reserve
A wine of brilliant platinum yellow colour which, as you may expect, gives a strong floral nose. Some orange peel, pear and fresh watermelon too.
Quinta da Lixa
Mark Blezard says, "A bright 'lemon yellow' wine by colour which does not disappoint by taste as it unfolds with aromas of citrus and juicy pears. Try this with a salad alone!"
Seixoso, Quinta da Lixa
This Seixoso holds the glass with a pale straw yellow and complex bouquet of white flowers, light fruits, almost juicy like pears, and a touch of melon.
Casa de Vila Nova
A classic Vinho Verde light lemon yellow. Full of citrus fruits, ripe pear and floral notes. Delightfully fresh on the palate but not short in flavour.
A wonderful light Vinho Verde which carries the classic effervescent fizz and light acidic tang to the palate. Perfect with salads, fish and afternoon dining.
Casal Garcia Rosé
A wonderful Rosé Vinho Verde from Casal Garcia. Plenty of fruity flavours with a great balance of acidity and freshness. Try this with a fish dish!
Casa de Vila Nova Rosé
This fresh wine shines with light strawberries. A fruity bouquet reveals blackberries amongst other spring berries.
Vila Nova Vinho Verde 2021
Coming soon... Floral, citrus and gentle tropical aromas lead on to a palate with sherbet lemon acidity, a touch of mango and a bright mineral finish.
