Don’t Judge Me Mondays: Broadbent Vinho Verde Rosé

/ Uncategorized

You guys may remember how much I love Vinho Verde this time of year.  I’ve also been on a mission this summer to discover more Rosés.  Well, imagine my delight when I saw this Vinho Verde Rose at my local grocery store!  And it was only $10!

 

Appearance

This wine definitely looks like a Rosé with a lovely deep salmon color.  The legs were almost non-existent which isn’t surprising with such low alcohol content (only 10%!).

 

Smell

Lovely hints of melon, pear, and sugarcane.

 

Taste

Just like original Vinho Verdes, this Rosé was slightly fizzy.  It’s slightly dry with apple notes and a nice strawberry finish.  I would definitely give this the “porch pounder” label, perfect for several glasses in the hot sun!

 

Pairings

As I mentioned this wine is light so it’s perfect to drink on its own.  It would also be wonderful with a light salmon dish, Caesar or caprese salad.  The crispness would also work with a big hunk of watermelon!
