Cruzeiro dos Arcos Vinho Verde Branco
Minho, Vinho Verde, Portugal
This beautiful summer wine is clear, fresh, young and balanced with slight citrus notes and gentle fizz. Limestone and lemon flowers through and through. Delightfully frizzante. Presents good aromas, maintaining citrine fruits of quality in the mouth. Possesses balanced acidity and good harmony. Low in alcohol and easy drinking makes this a perfect patio wine but, this Vinho Verde is high in acidity, which makes it ideal for pairing with all forms of seafood.
A young, fruity and delicate wine, ideal as an aperitif or with light dishes. It is light yellow-green in color, with a nose of citrus, and a crisp, spritzy acidity. Light in body with no oak. Very refreshing wine.
Grapes are fermented by gently pressing at low pressure which is followed by fermentation at controlled temperatures. During bottling, the wine is filtered and stabilized.
