My blogging friend Angela Barton over at My Year Without Spending has a great series called Wine Finds; delicious wines for under $10. Her series inspired me to share this inexpensive white wine with you.
I’m not a wine expert, but I found Fâmega Vinho Verde White to be the perfect wine for a hot summer day (a 106 degree day to be exact).
This nearly colorless white wine is crisp, refreshing, slightly sparkly and a bit fruity. But which fruit? It seems that the critics have different opinions. Is it…
peach and citrus
Unfortunately my taste buds cannot discern the delicate fruit flavor, except to say that it’s yummy.
Vinho Verde (Veen-yo Vehrd) is a Portuguese white wine. The name Vinho Verde means “Green Wine”, in reference not to its color but its youthful freshness. If you can’t find Fâmega Vinho Verde White, don’t despair. Try a different Vinho Verde wine. Many brands of Vinho Verde are inexpensive; typically less than $10, sometimes as low as $5.
What’s your favorite summer wine?
Sidenote: What do you call the diacritic over the a in Fâmega? A wedge, a triangle, a hat? It’s officially called a caron or hacek, but I like hat. There, that should improve your Jeopardy prowess.
