Wine Spectator Highlights Diverse Values From Portugal

Kim Marcus of Wine Spectator includes two Vinho Verde producers in his recent web feature article “14 Diverse Values From Portugal”. Kim says, ‘If you are looking for crisp whites, try the Vinho Verdes. The top-rated wine, from Soalheiro, is made from Alvarinho grapes (known as Albariño in Spain) grown in old-vine vineyards. The juice is mostly fermented in stainless-steel tanks, though a small percentage goes into neutral oak for added richness.’ Wines from Quinta da Lixa were also reviewed in this article.
