Vinho Verde means ‘green wine’, referring not to the wine's colour, but to its fresh, fruity youthfulness. Like a crisp sea breeze from the Atlantic, Briso do Mar is a refreshing wine to be enjoyed throughout the year.
The Lolita of the wine world - Portugal's most famous white wine begs to be drunk as young as possible, where its lithe and charming freshness offers maximum pleasure. Now thankfully back in fashion (the occasional Hollywood star spotted languidly sipping a glass or two helps), Vinho Verde is sourced from Portugal's most northerly region, where the relatively cool, damp climate creates fresh whites. Brisa do Mar's cool, come-hither nose of freshly cut green grass with a hint of lime extract, is followed by the thirst-quenching tang of elderflower and citrus with just a hint of petillance to round off the finish.
Fermented in stainless steel tanks.
Alvarinho 40%, Loureriro 30%, Trajadura 30%
Young and delicate, it should be served with fish, seafood, white meat dishes and summer salads.
