Professional Wine Reviews for Gazela Vinho Verde White Blend

More Info -
This delightfully light and easy to drink wine is slightly prickly, but has soft, freshly crushed northern gooseberries, white currants, honeydew melon, Granny Smith apple, lime zest, citrus peel and powerful hints of minerals. Going through the midpalate, the wine is very refreshing and finishes with a nice zingy and lively note of lemon drop and apple cider. There is good balance between fruit and acidity, making it highly attractive.

Additional Information on Gazela Vinho Verde White Blend

Winery Gazela

Country: Portugal

Most of us are quick to associate Portugal primarily with the excellent fortified wines which come out of the Porto area, but there is much more to Portuguese viticulture than just this. Perhaps the most popular still wines the country produces are the varieties from the Vinho Verde region, which uses grapes that do not achieve high doses of sugar, meaning the wines are at their best when young and full of natural, springy fruit flavors The wines of the Douro region have undergone many transformations in their flavor and character over the centuries; once regarded as a bitter wine, the exporters experimented with fortifying the wine with brandy. After several centuries, vintners found a balance in the modern age which is at once reminiscent of Port wine, yet with the structure and character closer to other fine Portuguese wines. Thanks to the appellation system of Portugal and the strict laws governing wine production, Portuguese wines continue to maintain their reputation for quality and the distinctive characteristics they carry.
