Top 10 wines in the US press

3rd July, 2013 by Andy Young

Vidigal Vinho Verde Shocking Green 2011

Vidigal Shocking GreenEric Asimov, in the New York Times, featured Vinho Verde, which “has soared in popularity” in the US. He wrote: “Look at the numbers. In 2012, Portugal shipped almost 5.5 million bottles of Vinho Verde to the United States, according to the Portugal Global Trade and Investment Agency. On its own, that’s not a huge amount. But it’s well more than triple the approximately 1.65 million bottles shipped 10 years ago, an enormous leap for a wine that many people know very little about.”

Asimov’s tasting panel voted this wine as number one, he wrote: “Our No. 1 wine, the 2011 Vidigal Shocking Green, had a particularly inviting texture,” adding, “tangy and refreshing with an inviting texture and crisp flavours of apple, citrus and nuts.”
