Bright pink coral color. Aromas and flavors of watermelon and concord grape jelly with a satiny, vibrant, spritzy, fruity light body and a smooth, breezy finish with notes of Seville orange zest and lime with soft, fruit tannins and no oak flavor. A delightful and fruity Vinho Verde for summer fun.

The most famous rosé wines are Vinho Verde, produced from the far northern region of the Minho province. Made from Espadeiro and Padeiro grapes, these are light wines with flavors of cranberry, apple and strawberry, range from off-dry to medium swwet and are meant to be enjoyed within one or two years, either sipped on their own or with light salads.
