Broadbent Vinho Verde NV

A Portugese wine made completely with the Branca grape, the Broadbent Vinho Verde NV is light, refreshing, and ever-so-slightly effervescent. It has lots of Golden Delicious and a hint of petrol on the nose, followed by a delicate apple palate and a clean finish. This low-alcohol (9 percent) offering is ideal for warm-weather quaffing — and Indian Summer is right around the corner!

This wine is shipped from Portugal in refrigerated containers to maintain its freshness, which adds to its cost. Even so, it's a bargain at just $9 a bottle.
