VERDELHO BY FIUZA 2019
We were delighted to discover Verdelho by Fiuza 2019, a new addition by this stunning Portuguese winery, well known and beloved by our clients.
Fiuza has rapidly become one of our top sources for all-time client favourite wines (makers of Eminente Reserva and Babu Reserva reds). We could sit here and rattle off all sorts of fancy descriptions and wine geek jargon, but the truth is this simple—these guys produce bloody delicious wines for mind-boggling low prices.
If you haven’t yet discovered this indigenous Portuguese white grape, imagine for a moment that Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio got together and gave birth to a love child; a white wine whose pure refreshment and ease of drinking is only exceeded by its bracing dry core of bright citrus fruit, and pure pairing magic alongside seafood and fish.
