Pessoa da Vinha Vinho Verde 'Summer Wine' 2017
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
Vinho Verde, though literally translated is a 'green wine', in reality stands for a 'young wine'. It was first mentioned around 9th century. Pessoa Wines was born in 2009, when winemaker Jorge Gonçalves and the South African winery MAN Family Wines launched a promising enterprise combining Jorge´s passion for Portugal and his know-how acquired in Germany, where he trained as a winemaker. From a very early age, he was already very attracted to the country where his parents were born and which would be the home to his own business in the future. Therefore, being able to produce in Portugal means more than just work, but also fulfilling a dream.
We are so impressed with this Vinho Verde white from Portugal. Most often, the Vinho Verde that we taste is fresh, easy, breezy, which is certainly fun and delicious, but this version of Vinho Verde was more complex and mouth-filling but still so easy to drink. In terms of the grape varieties grown in the DOC region of Vinho Verde, Loureiro and Alvarinho are the most aromatic and this is made of a blend of Alvarinho, Trajadura and Loureiro sourced from vineyards mainly in the renowned zones of Monção and Melgaço. Classic all-tank Vinho Verde vinification here. The Vinho Verde region is totally exposed to the influence of the Atlantic Ocean. It is a beautiful landscape, but also a place where patience is required in order to achieve optimum ripeness.
This Portughese white is perfect to pair with fish, grilled or baked, cod with cream sauce, shellfish, sushi, salads and fruits (especially mango and melon). Look for a clean, lemony nose, with a touch of white rose petals. A fresh wash of lime, grapefruit and perfumed melon can be tasted in the mouth, guided by the acidic, mineral edge which is classic for this wine.
