Portuguese Wines

Here are 2 white wines and 2 red wines to look for.  They are very reasonable priced, often $5 or $6 a bottle.

White wines:

Gatăo Vinho Verde is a light wine citrine in color, a fresh flavor of lemon and peaches with a slight effervescence.  I usually comes in a flask shaped bottle.

Gazela Vinho Verde is a dry wine with a crisp aroma, slightly sweet with green grape acidity.  It's like a lighter version of the French vouvray.

Red wines:

Reguengos has blackberry flavors, is rich and medium bodied. It's dry and makes a good quaffing wine.

Vinha Nova is a smooth fruity wine with grape flavors and has a merlot/gamay taste.  It's a good wine to serve with grilled, garlicky foods.
