Item Description

A low alcohol blend of 40 Malvasia, 30 Ferno Pire and 30 Seara Nova. The locals living around the Lisbon DO of Portugal frequently enjoy Vinho Leve wines. All producers make their own version of this quaffable, low-ABV wine, often opening up their wineries to locals to come fill a jug to take home or to the beach. But what is Vinho Leve? Literally translated to light wine, the energy of the wine cant be. The cool climate influence of the Atlantic boosts up the natural acidity of the fruit and subsequent wine and the mineral rich soils provide the salinity and substance.

The Alta Onda wines are made by the A.C. Vermelha cooperative that combines the resources of small family vineyards averaging less than 1 hectare a piece. Local white varieties are typically include Arinto, Ferno Pires, Malvasia, Seara-Nova, and Moscatel. The reds include Aragons (Tempranillo) and Castelo in addition to the smaller representation of Touriga Nacional, Tinta Mida and Trincadeira.

Great alternate white

"A really nice crisp white with sllght effervescence similar to a Vino Verde . Citrus notes but slightly sweet. Great anytime but definitely a wonderful summer picnic wine. At this price it's a steal."
