Quintas de Caíz, Encostas de Caíz Avesso, Vinho Verde, Portugal 2022
(at Carousel, London W1, 22 Feb 2023)
Drinking Window: 2023 - 2024
This expressive Vinho Verde is made from the rare Avesso grape, and is superior to the other Vinho Verde in the Wine Tour (yes there are two!). It's juicy and expressive, with ripe apple and pear flavours, and a rounded, almost honeyed finish. The spritz is barely detectable – just a good weight of fruit, and a hint of minerality.
