RECOMMENDED; BEST BUY: Wine Enthusiast

While Vinho Verde is a famous wine region and style in Europe, few on this side of the globe really know much about it. For starters, it's not actually "green" as the name suggests. Rather, the meaning of the name translates to 'young wine'. And that youthful vibrancy, a spritzy touch (yes, it's supposed to be just a tiny bit fizzy) and the stony lemon and lime flavours all come together to makes this a delicious, tongue-tingling summer white. Lemon sorbet, green apple and mineral freshness are to the fore and will surely leave you wanting another glass!

Casa Santos Lima (the producer of Tiroliro) is located about 40km away from Lisbon. They're a fairly big operation making wines from most regions of the country but all of them in a very regionally-sensitive way. And very modern, clean and drinkable to boot. We are really enthusiastic about these wines - for the wonderfully characterful break from the normal that they represent, but also because they are simply phenomenal value-for-money. You must try these wines.

    Perfect for a hot summer day!

    I spent a week in Lisbon last year where I tried my first Vinho Verde. I am not usually a white wine drinker but I really enjoyed it. When I got back to New Zealand I was pleased to see the Wine Direct had this Vinho Verde. I really enjoyed it. (I should add that NZ friends who usually like Sav Blanc were not impressed with this -- a bit different from what they were used to. ) I really enjoyed it -- light and refreshing perfect for hot summer day.

    I spent a few weeks in Portugal last year which is maybe why I was attracted to Wine Directs offer of Vinho Verde. Sitting at home with a glass evoked memories. It has youthful characteristic and refreshing subtle effervescent. I am very much enjoying and now the sun has been out it tastes even better
