Alianca Vinho Verde from Portugal

Sometimes, a glass of wine is all that is needed to cure a bad day.  Not to long ago, I had a pretty ferocious day at work.  On top of that, it was hot outside.  And while I don’t want to complain about having a sunny day (we never get enough sun here in Seattle), being hot and bothered is never a good combination.

aliancaI popped open a bottle of Alianca Vino Verde, a lovely white from Portugal. This wine is light yellow in color and has a green (savory veggie-like smell) and citrus not.  The palette was a touch of spice, sweet, tangy and citrus.

I didn’t pair anything with this wine.  I honestly just needed something to take the edge off my day and this glass of wine did just that.  There was also a hint of sparkle to this wine – a nice surprise and very refreshing.

A good wine for a decent price, and it made a bad day better.  I recommend it for sure!
