Review: NV Calamares Vinho Verde

 Review: NV Calamares Vinho VerdeA decidedly simple Portuguese bottling, a blend of Alvarinho and Loureiro grapes. Slightly effervescent, and quite easy to get down — being 9% abv doesn’t hurt. The nose, more vaguely citrus-meets-alcohol in character, isn’t anything special, but crisp pear notes meet lemon and pineapple on the body are a surprising delight. The finish is short and a little watery, but hardly a deal-breaker.
