Famega Vinho Verde, 2006

This was a leftover from the Summer of 2007. It was fresh and lively a year ago, with just a bit of fizz to refresh the palate, but it's not a winter wine, and I just hadn't gotten around to it yet this summer. Wow, what a pleasant surprise! The fizziness that the wine had a year ago had become a definite sparkle, forming a slight mousse with each pour. Fresh apples with lime juice and tonic water--perfect for a warm evening or a vegetable-oriented meal.

Famega is only $7.49 a bottle, and I've never met anyone who doesn't like its unabashed charm. It's 9% alcohol so you don't have to worry about coming back for glass after glass.
