93 • Quinta Da Lixa 2008 Vinho Verde $10. Best Buy.
Straw color. Mild fruity cocktail and praline aromas. A racy entry leads to a tart light medium with lively lemon and pear fruit and a zippy mossy stone finish. Extremely fresh and mouthwatering. Pair with spicy seafood tapas. (tasted on Jun-19-2009)
92 • Clemen 2008 Reserva, Vinho Verde $11.99. Best Buy.
Yellow straw color with an emerald cast. Fruity aromas of apricot, kiwi, and bubblegum spice follow through on a tangy entry to a dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body with great acidity and a nice chalk and citrus peel snap on the zippy finish. A superb wine to serve with smoked shrimp or grilled octopus. (tasted on Jun-19-2009)
84 • Vinha Real 2008 Vinho Verde $8.|Find-a-Wine|
Straw green color. Light aromas of peaches, apples and creamy nougat follow through on a bright, racy entry to a dryish light-to-medium body with tart kumquat and crabapple flavors, laser-like acidity, and a dry, chalky finish. Will cut through spicy and oily fishes dishes well. (tasted on Jun-19-2009)
