Gazela Vinho Verde (No Vintage) White Wine, Portugal ($8.99 BevMo)

  • Color- Almost looks like water, very very light yellow
  • Nose- Lacks balance, tart citrus
  • Body- Light
  • Taste- Sour, Tart, zest of lemons, citrus
  • Finish- Short, flavors falls off pretty quick
  • Easy to drink? This wine can be a little off putting if you don’t like sour or tart flavors. But that being said it is drinkable when chilled. Unless you just want to work on developing your palate I would pass on this wine.
