Muralhas de Monção Vinho Verde 2021

Pale straw in color with a citrus nose. The bubbles and effervescence which is typical of a vinho verde are visible right on the first pour and on the tongue. On the mid palate the wine is a fruit forward mouth of lime with crisp acidity and dryness. On the medium length finish the wine’s crisp minerality and citrus notes live on. I would give it an 87-88, not a bad wine, but nothing I rush out and grab more either, to me it was a flat wine with few layers or complexity. From the LCBO web site, check stock:
