Broadbent Vinho Verde

Vinho Verde has a lot going for it, and in my mind two of its best attributes are its consistency and its value. Ringing in between $8-$12 a bottle, it’s hard to go wrong with any of the (very limited) options at Utah liquor stores, even the rosés. Two popular misconceptions about the wine are simple to clear up. First, Vinho Verde, which translates to “green wine”, does not refer to the hue, but rather its age, as it’s best drunk as soon as possible after bottling. Secondly, Vinho Verde is a region in Portugal, and not the grape. The majority of export wines from this region are blends, with the most common grapes being Loureiro, Trajadura, and Alvarinho.

What gives the Broadbent Vinho Verde an edge over others found in state is their attention to detail and quality. Among other controls, Broadbent uses refrigerated containers during shipping to maintain the hallmark freshness of Vinho Verde. Twist the cap and you’ll find floral peach aromas with lemon and apple acidity on the palate. At 9% alcohol you can sip this all afternoon. When you finally do get out of that lounge chair, its an excellent match for typical summertime fare.

Pleasant companion for: Asian cuisine, spicy food, grilled chicken, shrimp skewers, grilled pizza, tacos.
