The Instacart guide to Vinho Verde
From the northern reaches of Portugal comes a sunny and vibrant wine that is like a summer day in a glass. Called Vinho Verde, this wine is actually a name for the areas of northwest Portugal and not a specific variety of grape. A delicious, budget-conscious choice, wines from Vinho Verde make a perfect complement to a breezy outdoor meal or one that conjures up summer memories. Instacart delivers several options that are friendly to the wallet and can be at your door in as little as 2 hours!
The undulating terrain of mountain ranges, valleys, and rivers tempered by high annual rainfall and cooler temperatures produces 45 varieties of red and white grapes. Vinho Verde wines are notable for their mouth-puckering acidity, subtle carbonation, and relatively low alcohol level compared to other wines. Vinho Verde, Portuguese for "green wine," earned its name from the brilliantly green hills among which its composite grapes thrive.
Most Vinho Verde wines come from a blend of white grapes including Alvarinho, Arinto, Azal, Avesso, Loureiro, and Trajadura varietals. These grapes produce the bright, fruity notes of grapefruit, peach, melon, and citrus blossoms that give Vinho Verde its alluring flavor. While less typical, there are red and rose varieties that introduce subtle notes of fruits like plum and sour cherry. Vinho Verdes are considered "young wines," meaning that they are intended to be enjoyed within 6 months to maximize the bright, colorful flavors.
