Sottal: A Perennial Favorite!

A Perennial Favorite!

Sottal, Vinho Regional, Lisboa, Portugal
Mar 21, 2012: It’s that time of year again! Time for evenings on the porch and sunset dinners al fresco… and this gorgeous white wine is my perennial Spring & Summer favorite! The perfect wine for late afternoon porch sipping with fresh and floral aromas of white jasmine, honeysuckle and tropical fruits. Similar to Portugal’s beloved Vinho Verde, this dry Muscat from just outside of Lisbon is a unique and refreshing white big on flavor and low on alcohol at just 10% so you can sip longer into the evening…

“Wonderful, light aromas of citrus fruits, kiwi, ripe strawberry and a perfume-like gardenia quality…crisp lemon/lime flavors without overbearing acidity. Subtle effervescence gives it a surprising creamy texture. Two Thumbs Up!” – Gil Kulers, Atlanta Journal Constitution
