Portugal — Vinho Verde • $17.95 • WD Score 89/100

This is a real treat: a serious Vinho Verde made from the Avesso grape by the excellent producer Quinta de Covela. The nose is rather neutral, with little fruit save for hints of green apple and lemon, with an undertone of dried herbs. The wine is fully dry, with a lovely, mouth-filling weight balanced by firm acids, that give the palate a compelling savoury freshness, with just a hint of lemony fruit that carries into the drying, stony finish. So drinkable, and such a compelling wine. • Tasted 2018-01-20 • LCBO id#524868 • Find it at your nearest LCBO • SAPIA WINES & SPIRITS (Agent)
