Product details

  • A lip-smackingly delicious Vinho Verde, with aromas of apple and grapefruit alongside herbal notes. The palate is medium-bodied and refreshing, with the classic touch of spritz. The Quinta da Lixa is made from some classic grape varieties grown in the Vinho Verde region. It has a bright, lemon tinged appearance with aroma that is fruity, with hints of tropical fruits and a flowery character. In the mouth, it is well balanced, dry, with a lovely fresh finish.

Press ReviewPress

Look no further for the most delightfully fresh, light, and zippy Summer white – and at only 10.5% alcohol, it’s a brilliant buy for alfresco lunches, or a glass in the sunshine. From the northern part of Portugal, it’s part of a new wave of deliciously crisp, bone dry whites from the Vinho Verde region, which are now hitting the shelves. It smells of freshly-cut green apples, lemon zest and meadow flowers; taste it, and it tingles the senses with its crisp, lively flavours, and, with a tiny hint of spritz, it’s packed with vibrant lemon and lime, granny smith apple and white peach flavours. Perfect on its own, this delicate little number will be a subtle partner to oysters, the freshest of seafood, and light vegetable salads.

Angela MountBath Chronicle

For lunchtime picnics, Vinho Verde is the perfect choice, and rapidly coming back into fashion – forget the sweet fizzy stuff of old, today’s versions, are crisp, dry, and lemony-bright with the merest hint of spritz, and utterly refreshing both in taste and in lightness of alcohol. Vinho Verde Quinta da Lixa is ideal, at a mere 10.5% alcohol,and won’t have you dozing off on the beach after lunch. Enjoy with the freshest of salads.

Angela MountBath Life - July 2017 - BARBECUES, BEACHES AND PICNICS…..SUMMERTIME SIPPING

Vinho verde, which comes from the north of Portugal, is another wine to look out for during these dog days of summer...I prefer the prettier, floral character of Vinho Verde Quinta da Lixa 2016 (10.5% abv). You could drink that with anything fishy, from sardines to shrimps. Incidentally, the region’s producers seem to have given up on trying to persuade us that it’s pronounced vino verd, as they insisted when I visited a few years ago – on a promotional YouTube video I stumbled across the other day, they all pronounce it “verday”.
