Wine of the Week - Espiral Vinho Rosé


This semi-sparkling rosé comes from the same line as a vinho verde I had a little over a year ago.  This rosé is not quite as good as verde, but it's still a decent wine.  (Full disclosure: I've never been much of a rosé fan to begin with.)

On the nose, this wine promises to be sour.  There's a little bit of raspberry and pear.

That sourness does not come through on the tongue.  This wine is pretty sweet, with a little taste of brut and raspberry.  Best served chilled.  Would probably make for a refreshing summer drink.  Overall, it's pretty bland.  But it's okay, and the flavor is enhanced by its low price.

10% alcohol
