2011 Cruzeiro Vinho Verde

Citrus and mineral are all that I really get from the nose of this wine.  The palate is equally austere, showing some tart lemon flavor alongside mineral characteristics, such as stones and salt.  The acidity is good and it has a nice, dry mouthfeel.  The finish is all mineral.

This isn’t a wine that’s going to excite everyone, but it has its place.  If you like rich tropical fruit flavors in your wine, this isn’t for you.  But if you want something clean, simple and refreshing on a hot summer day, you might dig this wine.
