It’s all about context, people. On the deck after a day at the pool. This is smooth and refreshing. Not too tart. Smells like fruit salad - strawberries and pineapples (although my son swears it’s green apples) Smooth and light-medium bodied. Then a taste of green apples mellowed out with a touch caramel. Goes well with the smell of chlorine on my skin.

My first Vinho Verde. Just a touch of frizzy, mineral, fresh, maybe a tad sweet towards the end. I would describe it as a frizzy crossover between dry Riesling and Pinot Grigio.
