Tasting- Aveleda Praia Vinho Verde

Praia-Vinho-Verde

Name: Aveleda Praia Vinho Verde

Variety: 40% Arinto, 30% Loureiro, 20% Trajadura and 10% Azal

Region: Vinho Verde

Country: Portugal

Year: 2013

Price: $10

Critic Notes: A blend of 40% Arinto, 30% Loureiro, 20% Trajadura and 10% Azal. Full of fruit, a lasting peach flavor targeted with laserlike acidity through the finish. It has the bite of salty ocean air and a lot of zing. For langoustines.-Wine & Spirits

My Notes: The nose was sweet, fruity, and very open. I though the palate was too sour and strong although the after-palate had a nice, open aspect to it.

I did not have this with food.
