Esporão, Bico Amarelo 2019, Vinho Verde, Portugal
Tasting Note: Vinho Verdhe at its best is flavorful, bright and aromatic, and this wine speaks to the wine at its best.
Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of white peach, pineapple, lychee, starfruit, quince, blossom and lime citrus.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied vinho verde has medium-plus flavor intensity with tropical fruit flavors suggested on the supported by medium acidity and completing with a floral, medium-plus finish.
Even as the wine is mostly straightforward there are some notes of complexity along the midpalate.
Open and serve with seafood as I’m enjoying tonight with shrimp scampi.
Bottle Note: Bico Amarelo expresses the characteristics and grape varieties of the Vinho Verde wine region. This is a light and refreshing wine, perfect for any occasion.
