Readers, meet your new Summer sipper: Opala's Vinho Verde. A couple of weeks ago, I happened to grab a bottle of this wine on sale for only $6.99 at Whole Foods. I picked it up because I've developed a recent interest in Portuguese wine, the price was right, and I thought the label was pretty.
Boy, did I score a winner with this one! It's a wonderfully refreshing white with a slight effervescence. It has a light body, crisp finish, and fresh apple flavor. It's easy to drink and versatile. I've enjoyed it with everything from seafood to cheese to chicken tacos. It even tastes good alone.
It's the perfect bottle for picnics, barbecues, and other outdoor activities. I highly recommend you stock your fridge with this likable white. Has anyone else had it?
