If you’re having a summer get together, complete with sunshine and perhaps a body of water, you may be searching for a white wine to throw in the chiller that won’t break the bank. Portugal’s Vinho Verde is just the pick.
This wine pairs particularly well with pikantika – spicy Greek dishes, like loukaniko and hot peppers.
In general, Vinho Verdes are very light bodied, have a delicate fizz, low alcohol content, and equally low price tag. The Broadbent Vinho Verde is a perfect example of the wine’s simple, versatile style. It has a touch of sweetness – not enough to be cloying or heavy, but just enough for a slight tingle on your tongue.
The low alcohol content makes this cocktail wine perfect for sipping at an all day party. The gentle sugary quality is what makes it just right as a partner to spicier noshes.
