Tapada de Villar Vinho Verde 2012 - Case of 6
critics summer choice but past its best?
This received rave reports in the press in the summer, so I was expecting much more than it delivered.
Hint of lemon was as good as it got.
I can only assume that this is a wine that needs to be drunk before summer finishes.

A disappointing wine
I purchased several bottles of this wine because the 2011 vintage was delicious , a real taste of Portugal, but I was very disappointed with the 2012 because the 'slight spritz' is more like a full blown fizz. I gave a friend some to try and he thought it was Prosecco ! The actual taste of the wine is very pleasant but completely spoilt by the excess of bubbles. Really only suitable for sipping in the garden on a hot sunny day, certainly I would never drink it with food.

Under rated Portuguese wine.
This wine is simply Portugal in a bottle. Its another example of the very much under rated wine by far. This slightly sparkling wine is just perfect for any meal or occation. Refreshing and light, I'm pleased we can buy this excellent reminder of our holidays in Portugal. People can buy this product with confidence.
