The Oddbins Take

One of the most sought-after white styles of the moment, Portuguese Vinho Verde is a convention in its own right: one of those wines whose intrinsic quality offers that special something that certain white lovers want but can't describe. Its particular character comes from a faint twinkling almost spritz on the tip of the tongue and at just 11.5% this will slip down like a dream. Pale, dry and clean with only an ounce of delicate flavour.

David Williams in The Observer, 24/1/16: "There are some drinks that we cherish for not changing. And, like a Radio 4 loyalist fussing over a switch in the schedule, I’d get cross if the owners of Campari, Talisker 10 Year Old Malt Whisky or my guilty nostalgic pleasure, Lucozade, started messing around with the formula. It’s different with wine. Because tens of thousands of different labels are made each year, we, or at least I, tend to get hung up on the new. It’s quite rare to drink the same brand twice – and brands that have been quietly but consistently doing their thing for years get overlooked. A shame when they’re as good as Azevedo’s textbook Vinho Verde, a provider of vividly tangy but light refreshment for 25 years now."
The original Quinta de Azevedo dates back to the 11th century and was carefully restored in the early 1980s after Portuguese wine and port company, Sogrape, bought the estate.
