Description: Concalo Sousa Lopes likes to say that there are two Vinho Verdes; the ones most people are familiar with, sweet with a little CO2 pumped in, and then there is real Vinho Verde. The wines of Sousa Lopes are firmly in the second category. The wines of Sousa Lopes are true terroir expressions, with low yields from old vines, and vinified with no CO2 or sugars. Pale-straw color with aromas of red plum and white pepper. On the palate, crisp and vibrant acidity with a vibrant mineral expression. The wet-stone quality is evident with a touch of citrus lime.
Food pairing: Asian food, calamari, ceviche, clams, fried seafood, lemon, mussels, salads, sardines, stew seafood, green vegetables, vinaigrette, cold cuts, light fare, etc.
