2020 Lima Vinho Verde Rose - 88 PTS - IWR

i winereview logo"Light, orangeflecked pink. Aromas and flavors of a fresh fruit salad of watermelon, strawberry, and banana. There’s a slight spritz on the attack with good concentration of flavor on a crisp, refreshing palate with just a hint of sweetness on the finish. Would make the perfect wine cooler mixed with ice and a fresh sprig of mint or other herb. A blend of 75% Souzao, 15% Borrocal, and 10% Espadeiro fermented in stainless steel and aged on the lees for 4 months. Produced by the large cooperative Adega de Ponte de Lima with some 2 thousand growers located in Lima, one of the subregions of Vinho Verde. 11% alc. We love both its low alcohol and exceptional value!- Don WINKLER"
