Yay, spring has sprung and that is a cause for celebration! What do I want to grab to celebrate but the ever delicious 2005 Quita de Cabriz Bruto of course. Let’s just get something out in the open, I really heart Portuguese wine. We carry quite a few at LUSH which means I have had the chance to try quite a few. Usually they are made with grapes indigenous to Portugal, so you will rarely find a Cab, Merlot, Chard blah blah blah but rather find grapes like Maria Gomes, Baga, Bical rah rah rah. In fact, I believe that they grow over 500 different varietals, so the possibility of trying something I have never tried before is endless!
With all that being said, I do love to grab a bottle of the Quinta de Cabriz Bruto becuase, well, it’s delicious. Made from a blend of Malvasia Fina and Bical, this sparkling is super refreshing while having a really nice balance to it. Lots of citrus notes without being too acidic. Yay for celebrating spring with this sparkling wine!
