Sogrape Vinhos Gazela Vinho Verde Non Vintage, Portugal

My Rating 81 Points. 
Price $8.

It’s the weekend, everyone. Nothing like starting it at the beach with a glass of wine…

Light yellow in color with a golden hue.

Very simple nose of green apples, lemons, limes, citrus, some grassy notes, minerals and white pepper.

Medium to full bodied with high acidity and very tiny bubbles that make it spicy.

Dry and tart on the palate with lemons, limes, green apples, tropical fruits, light butter, minerals, sea salt and light black pepper.

Medium Plus on the finish with limes and tart grapefruits.

This is a very basic food wine. I paired it with Baked barbecue chicken, sun and the beach.
Not offensive at all, but not complex either. Well-balanced and drinkable.
Feels like a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris, but it’s not…

9% alcohol by volume.
