What a great wine for a summer's evening. A good vinho verde such as this one, Quinta de Azevedo 2010 (£6.99, Waitrose), is fresh, crisp, light and totally refreshing. It partners any light chicken or fish dish so well, and, being only 11.5% alcohol, doesn't give you a head the next morning! It is slightly chalky in style, and its youth shows in a bit of spritz.
The 2010 in particular has received good press, and won a number of medals, so I cannot claim an original find. That said, it is still worthy of a recommendation in anyone's book.
Much to be enjoyed here!
