When the summer FINALLY arrives, I will be buying two styles of Vinho Verde. The lighthearted, low-alcohol stuff for hot weather guzzling, and the drier, sharper, almost up-scale edition for aperitif. Ventozela is a super up-lifting aperitif ““ one sip and your palate, and imagination, begin to crave seafood, oysters or any appetizer with a splash of lemon zest. Or just another glass as you enjoy the sunset. ~
Produced from a blend of three Portuguese grapes that delivers a Dry Riesling meets Pinot Grigio experience. Refreshing, uplifting & teasing. Wonderful stuff.
