This summer Iâ€™ve been touting the virtues of single grape variety Vinho Verdes, but now I’d like to remind you of the humble original â€“ the slightly fizzy, low alcohol edition thatâ€™s the very best gulper for alfresco and party drinking. Every time I have a glass (no, make that a bucket) of Aveledaâ€™s wine Iâ€™m reminded of how I described the wine many moons ago â€“ adult lemonade. Certainly one of the worldâ€™s great â€˜funâ€™ wines. Enjoy it before the summer ends.
