Vinho Verde wine deal

The 2009 Quinta de Azevedo Vinho Verde is in London shops, and at current specials is quite a good deal. You can find it for 4.99 a bottle at Majestic provided you buy at least two (and six total bottles minimum for an order), and 4.99 at Waitrose, with an extra 5% discount if you buy a total of six bottles (mixed wines are ok). Good lemony acidity (think grilled fish or piri-piri chicken to go along), a bit of spritziness (artificially added?), a tad high on the alcohol for a vinho verde (11%), but it's a more serious wine than most vinho verdes. It's going to be my house white for the next few months...

  1. Agree, this is a good wine for the price and 11% still makes it excellent for lunch. It's really good with barbecued sardines, peppers and boiled potaotes. Cheers.
