Raza Vinho Verde

As we continue on with our Spring Whites feature this month, we’re moving on to Portugal and covering a Vinho Verde from Quinta da Raza, appropriately called Raza Vinho Verde.

We first discovered Raza Vinho Verde, while at a libations show and became immediately impressed by its refreshing mouth feel and its reminiscence to summer.

On colour, the Raza Vinho Verde holds a pale straw hue.  On the nose, scents of pear, apple and slight spice are present. On the palate, you’ll recognize grapefruit, lemon and some mandarin orange, with well tempered acidity and a fantastic spritz feel on the tongue.

Though this wine is not yet available at the LCBO, we were able to order ours through local distributor, Nokhrin Wines.

This wine can be ordered through Nokhrin Wines for $12.95 per bottle.

We gave this wine a score of 4 out of 5
