2007 Adega Cooperativa de Ponte de Lima Vinho Verde Adamado

Vinho Verde is a crisp, slightly prickly white wine from Portugal meant to be drunk young and chilled on a summer day. Its lively acidity and scent of pears and wildflowers make it especially refreshing in the heat. Made from a blend of loureiro, trajadura and pederna grapes, it's wonderful with a fish soup, a bowl of steamed mussels or some grilled yellowtail.
